Looking at my post list I had quite forgotten this one has been waiting some time for my personal comments. I finished this book last year. I put in my favorite quotes but then it just sat, forgotten. So without further delay let me get to it and post it. While people brood, time skips…… Continue reading Einstein’s Dreams

The morning has been especially reminiscent of autumn with a crisp, cool breeze blowing through the trees and a clearness of the blue ocean which is often obscured by fog in the summer. The leaves do not change colors much here on the coast, and it is…… Continue reading Journal Entry 10.11.19

It was a chance encounter seeing it featured as a book to digitally borrow from my library app and I listened to it during…… Continue reading The Alchemist

It is 5:45 AM on December 27th, 2018. I woke up at 3:00 AM and so just decided to get up. I’ve been playing with my Oculus Go that I gifted myself for Christmas and it is fabulous. It is the same as my Samsung Gear VR but that used my Samsung S6 and always…… Continue reading Oculus VR, Experiences, Mindsets and Gratefulness
