I finished Omarosa’s book Unhinged just before I took off for the meditation retreat, and got started on Woodward’s book Fear yesterday, Tuesday.
Thus far, my assessment is Omarosa’s book is the better read.
Unhinged took this reader on a breathless ride. There were times when what I was reading was so interesting and exciting that I couldn’t put the book down ─ I just had to know what happened next. Fear is deep, slow-moving, methodical, reading more like a textbook, but hopefully it will pick up steam.
I have a feeling that, after finishing Fear, I’m going to need a long hot bath to wash away the knowledge of how deliberately evil and manipulative people running the country can be, a penicillin shot to protect myself from being affected by their policies, and another meditation retreat to keep Hope alive.
Then there’s this.
Shocking to see Cosby in handcuffs, even though he brought it upon himself.
Reminded me of how stunned I was, back in November of 2003, to turn on the news and see the King of Pop in cuffs.
On the whole, the world isn’t looking too rosy right now, but I'm thinking what we see is more or less a fulfillment of that verse which goes, "In the final days, that which is hidden shall be revealed". All this ugliness that's being exposed is dispelling of that which is diseased in mankind so the healing can begin.
In the interim, our individual lives must go on, so on tap for today is my annual blood test (thank the Universe it doesn't require fasting), a flu shot, and registering for my next 5K.
It’s cosplay, so I’m going as my favorite character to portray ─ Walking Dead’s Michonne.
