I’ve got about 8 pieces of writing on the go; each of which could become a book; and I am so very slow; and logic says I should focus on one or the other and finish it. But I don’t. I weave from one to the other as if commanded so.

I’ve been reading pieces this evening, that I began about a year ago. Around that time was a huge inspirational creative time for me.

Now one of the books is perhaps half way to completion in draft one. The one I was just reading is around 5000 words so 5% to 10% of a book. That one makes me very happy to read right now. I think I will give that one a solid nudge int he coming days or weeks.

I am so lazy. I work on it in fits and spurts and sometimes nothing for weeks.

Am I behind schedule?

“It seems to me immensely unlikely that mind is a mere by-product of matter. For if my mental processes are determined wholly by the motions of atoms in my brain I have no reason to suppose that my beliefs are true. They may be sound chemically, but that does not make them sound logically. And hence I have no reason for supposing my brain to be composed of atoms.”

“… bananas, which comprise the most common dishes of theIndians, are cooked and the resultant banana mush will be mixed with the ash and bone of the deadtribe member. Then, all of the relatives gather to eat up the mush. The reason for that is the religiousbelief. The soul of the former tribe member is absorbed by the tribe again and freed by thisprocedure to be ready for salvation. If this ceremony was not carried out, the soul of the Indianwould not be able to be freed and would be damned to remain in the world between life and death.”
