It was an 1.5 hour extravaganza that only cost 15 bucks.

Some Of My Books
To adore books seems to be a good hobby,
Frequented book hunts and gatherings,
Tireless reading, journaling, blogging and more…
Sunday is about the only day I get to enjoy some of my books.
My gratitude abounds!
Mike’s Library Books
First of all, getting a community library card from your local university is a must…
I was at the library yesterday and got a vid on Africa Savannah, skim through “100 Mustread Booksformen by Stephen E. Andrews and Duncan Bowis .
I need to pick up Cool Hand Luke by Donn Pearce.

Books, Books and More Books,
What they (Amazon) did first.
Seriously, Grand Opening Of Indigo @ Mayfair Shopping Center, Victoria, B.C., Canada
Okay, Merry Christmas, gift card splurge at the bookstore, bought a calendar and books.
Okay, you may not like what I bought, but I highly recommend them all. Just reading this is good enough.
I got the ‘Insight from the Dalai Lama 2019 Calendar.
I also bought some philosophy books.
Okay, if you don’t read anymore, be sure to pick up something from your local bookstore.
I love philosophy: Socrates, Epictetus, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Meditation, and Gratefulness.
I could tell you all the sorted details, but just let me say, I have lots of reading to occupy me for the foreseeable future.
The Complete Books Of Robert Frost
A Road Not Taken
I. The Witch Of COÖS
These are just three of 350 titles to choose.
I have pondered this great American poet for the past three decades.
His work is amazingly truthful and telling.
The Poetry Of Robert Frost: All eleven of his books-complete: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Frost
I beg your pardon…
Being alone is a treasure because I find compassion, patience and simplicity.
Yielding to a discovery process I uncover much and learn even more about my interests and pursuits.
Yet, unless society receives a return for itself, this endeavor ma appear fruitless and a waste of time, energy and resources.
Yet, it is fascinating to look at the creative mind.
The closer solitude is examined the muddier the water appears to be.
For example, not all mothers are blamed when their child does not form an attachment.
In some cases it is considered a disease like Autism.
In many instances of solitude the artiest, or creative person will seek out solitude to find authenticity.
Again, this is difficult for society, even the immediate family and friends who may find the creative person aloof or preoccupied with their work and less with their relationship to others.
But it is easy to recognize the outcomes as valuable: creativity, authenticity, truth, science, art, philosophy, etc.
Traits Vs. States, that is the question.
My health is a state.
My traits lead to good or bad health.
To acquire these traits is part of the great mystery or 10,000 things.
It really is a problem in disguise.
Some call it the Art of Living.
Others, sum it up as the way to be.
People are fools for the truth.
There are knaves that twist the truth.
Scientists are the knights of the new age.
There are problems that elude repair and recovery,
And require ongoing examination to hatch a remedy.
At present meditation is the answer.
There are many ways to contemplate consciousness.
Some summarize it as navel gazing.
Others embrace the practice of mindfulness.
The east has been sending teachers to show us and teach us.
Many of us have gone to the east to experience this truth for ourselves.
A history is written about the philosophy of meditation.
Some in the west call it the way to become happy.
Yet, science is only scratching the surface.
Philosophy is starting to use thousands of years of contemplation to uncover the truth.
There is no simple answer.
Using drugs seem to be part of the problem, even for western medicine.
Psychology will study the mind, but the problem is still eluding psychology.
Meditation begs us to slow down.
Being mindful, we become aware of the child within each of us.
We are learning the science behind relaxation, engagement, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle.
Meditation is a tool to acquire the traits to live a better lifestyle.
