Good Morning! Coffee on the right! Accompanied with two pieces of raisin bread. Raisin bread is always good. It is a quiet morning. Cool in the house, so a cozy sweater feels good. I think I will begin by reading, some research. I will give myself a day before reading and going over what I have written so far in the manual.
The mail carrier has brought me a letter from Switzerland! My pen pal Sean, who is Irish. Nice and fat! Full of history and other stuff! Written on handmade paper! Written by dip pen or fountain pen. Answering him will be an excellent way to take a break from working on the manual. I’ll write him and tell him some of Maine’s history, and about the type of trees here. Perhaps some more of the wildlife in my backyard.
The world is full of changes. Another friend was feeling sad that where she grew up, was not as friendly as it once was. That you heard of theft, and other such goings-on that did to happen when she was a kid. This is sad, and I wonder what will affect such things, that would make them at least rare.
Well, it has been a while since opening a book of Joyce Hifler’s. It always seems to open on something I need as a reminder. My eyes fell on this: “We are so appalled at each other’s ignorance. We are so disbelieving that our own ignorance could be as profound as another’s and we stand in wonder as to why he can’t see it. Yes, we do expect others to “get how we are or what we mean” yet we failed to really get others. Will Rogers said something along the lines of “W are all ignorant but just on different subjects.”How true!
I must need a break today, so I will follow my soul’s lead and pick up “Inkheart” to read something different and to go to another world with a range of characters in it! Merlock can lay beside me and snore his peacefulness. It feels like I need a weekend kind of day. It after all Saturday!
