Well, I won't be going dancing tonight!
And I am having a small hiatus from weaving...
(to give my right knee a little rest from the #2 treadle -
the knee I hurt water skiing, - a self inflicted wound
inspired by a bout of egoism)
I considered a short session
of Candy Crush
but decided in favor of a good book!
one that I can take to bed with me....
I have been re-reading Loren Eiseley lately
and am almost finished
"The Firmament of Time"
Probably just about a couple of dozen pages.
Just right to finish before the head starts to nod
and the eyes close
and the book falls
and I waken with a start
and start reading again
but I probably don't absorb the last few pages
and there, I'll have to do it all over again!!!
This is a book I bought from Thrift Books.
A collection of Essays (or lectures)
beautiful prose, - easy to read
and very thought provoking.
Loren Eiseley was seventy
when he died in 1977
so there have been a number of more recent books
written on anthropology
but I doubt if any of them tell too much more
about man's scientific thoughts
on the nature of the world.
I find that "time is of the essence" these days
in many of the things I hope to do
and so I think it behooves me to take Bruce
out for his before-bed business,
and let Callie in for treats.....
and take myself to bed, together with
"The Firmament of Time".
