What a fabulous day.  Worked, came home, visited with my family.  I even got to see my cat!

Now I'll go start Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon.  I think that it will be enjoyable.

Read and enjoyed much, Brain on Fire by Susannah Cahalan.  What a fortunate course of events for her psychiatric episode.  I forget sometimes just how foreign these issues can be, yet how familiar.  Will pray for relief and healing for all of those folks struck with indecipherable lunacy.  I find that just reading more books and keeping a blog help with the brain health.

May the New Year be filled with good tidings.

Oh yeah, read a good portion of Against Depression by Peter D. Kramer, and am still consumed with thoughts of how to defeat depression in my own life.  I think the being happy has a lot to do with it.  So now I'll go read and wait for my best friend to return.

Day 4 of Christmas.

Mother Teresa is certianly an inspiration.  I wonder how her life might have improved with an antidepressant medicine.  That she managed to overcome the melancholia in her own and through churchly obedience is nothing short of amazing.

I finished the other book, too, and did enjoy.  Now what to read?  In the meantime, still plodding through Future Shock, mainly noting what innovation has actually come to fruition since this book's publication, though also noting what hasn't quite come through yet. 

Will read a short volume about obsessive compulsive disorder as well, but wow!  Good fiction!  Stat!

Will most likely discontinue this blog soon.  Like anybody reads this nonsense anyway.  Am currently feeling as if I don't want to participate really in the internet that everybody loves.  I just want to be able to look stuff up, and maybe see how my friends are doing, if all goes well.  That's good enough for me.

So I'm still reading the two books that I mentioned previously, but the end is in sight.
The Book of Madness and Cures is kind of a geekfest, but one that I enjoy.  Pretty much I'm going to say that I enjoy everyrthing, just to stay positive.  So what else is there to enjoy in life, but everything, every moment of every day.

I'm so thankful of my friends and family, and especially of the holidays that we have been sharing.  Frequently I wish that I could be more, but I think that I'm good enough for all of this nonsense of living.  I'm glad I've finally figured out that it is what it is and that's all that it is.

So Mother Teresa had a fire within her for souls, and perhaps that's what I should orient myself by.  Hoping for the salvation of many, and operating the means to facilitate that.  Thankfully I have come to know that God is good, and that he loves us so much, even though sometimes we forget that.  I feel as if perhaps my purpose is to remind folks of that.

Blogging is not really my favorite activity, but I'll keep with it.  Probably my life is so boring that no one will even care and that makes me thankful. 

Watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and sure did enjoy.  I love old folks, and am thankful for the pursuit of happiness well into old age.  I'm increasingly old, and am thankful for it. :)  What a blessing!

Happy holidays!

Haven't been reading as much lately, as kind of got bogged down with holiday activities.

Am starting The Book of Madness and Cures by Regina O'Melveny, tonight.  I think that it will be good.  What could be better, or more up my alley, than madness and cures?  Maybe this book will have the answer for me.

Have been impressed by Mother Teresa's obedience, and adherence to church protocol, in the pursuit of her life's calling.  What an inspiration.

I can't decide if keeping up with this blog is fun or what.  I do often feel the need to write about what I'm reading, because it is so motivational to do so.  Plus the activity makes me feel as if I'm really working, when actually I am not.  Maybe one of these days i will have all the answers, at which point I'll make sure to post it on this blog.

The answers that I seek most likely involve extensive cleaning efforts, and lots of hard work.  So let me begin!
