I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. When I get up I first go to my study and put on my glasses. Next I write down the page I am on in my 2020 paper Diary. Then I carry into our dining room my paper diary, a clock, and books. Next I get a glass of cold water to wet my dry throat and then I say Good Morning to my wife. After waking up some what I ask my wife if she has had breakfast. Does she want me to cook anything for breakfast. This morning my wife suggested we have for breakfast oatmeal. So I made a pot of oatmeal and then ate my mush.
I spent the morning up to the afternoon hours writing in my paper diary and reading from these books-
'The Theology Of Thomas Aquinas' Edited By Rik Van Nieuwenhove & Joseph Wawrykow
'The Spiritual Espousals And Other Works' by John Ruusbroec Introduction And Translation By James A. Wiseman, O.S.B. [The Classics of Western Spirituality]
'The Eastern Orthodox Church: A New History' by John Anthony McGuckin
'The Spiritual Writings of Denis the Carthusian' Translated into English by Ide M. Ni Riain, RSCJ
Now it is 2:03 PM and I am drifting through the afternoon hours. Carol has been making peanut brittle all day.
Last night I watched some professional football and read from a book titled, 'The Diaries of Emilio Renzi-The Happy Years' by Ricardo Piglia Translated by Robert Croll. I went to bed last night around 11 o'clock PM. Now it is a Friday afternoon and soon it will be January 1, 2021.
I will close to drift. There is no way of escape.
