glorycloud's Diaryland Diary


the mystery of capitalism

It is in the Plan of God for the present cosmos 2:31 PM here in West Michigan. I sure there is no actual Time in the Eternal Now. I did not plan to write again today, but I went out this afternoon to get some food items and had to stop at local thrift stores to search for used books while I was out and about. I can not go by a thrift store and not stop and see if they have any interesting books to ADD to our library. Sometimes you might only find one interesting used book or you might find a ton of interesting used books. This morning I found a ton of interesting used books and I want to list them because I like making lists. Also I will print off this diary entry that has a list of used books I bought today and therefore I will not have to write out all the book titles by hand in my paper diary. It is like killing one bird with two stones. So here is a list of the used books I found today at nearby thrift stores-

After visiting thrift stores and a grocery store I drove home to mess with my books and wait for the sky to crack open to let in Eternity.

I will close to write next in my paper diary. The last book I attempted to read today was titled or is titled, "Hunter: The Strange and Savage Life of Hunter S. Thompson" biography by E. Jean Carroll.
