Last time I read a Tom Clancy novel…

“Uneven pacing…” Sounds like my life… Thank you for this. My last and only other was Sum of All Fears. It reminds me I have to write up the memorial for the Joyce Kilmer centenary memorial service on July 30 up in the Forest named after him. He was in the famed Rainbow Division. More on that later. I’m actually excited about reading Rainbow Six. The last time I read a Tom Clancy novel I wrote my own (which I only half put up). This may get me reinvigorated. With all the other stuff going on, I may be able to add some further intrigue, and a sequel, as if there wasn’t enough intrigue and me already not having an unpublished thought. ;-)

I’ve been listening to some audio books

books catholic

These were for sale in the bookstore down in Hanceville, Alabama. So far I’ve gone through The Wisdom of Father Brown and The Practice of the Presence of God. Right now I’m listening to Heretics. The utter brilliance of Chesterton’s presentation caught me off guard. He can go on forever without mentioning any heretic, and then, when he does, he almost inaudibly throws out a name, and then it hits you that he’s led up to that ever so polite mention of the name by first destroying everything that person has ever done in their life. Sorry, but… I Just Love That. Just to say, I think our Guardian Angels do that with us All The Time.
