January thirtieth in the evening. A damp and cloudy day in the river valley on the west side of the mountain. Light drizzle a couple of times and the cool air is fresh. I have recently been reading through parts of The Creature from Jekyll Island, A Second Look at the Federal Reserve by G. Edward Griffin, fourth edition, June, 2002. He has some other more recent articles, notably, a series of four: The Chasm; Secret Organizations and Hidden Agendas; Days of Infamy; and The War on Terrorism. All good informative stuff. [link]
Later, after enough of a fill of all that for today, slowly pace through the final pages of a Pearl Buck novel, The Hidden Flower. The story of a young soldier in post world war two occupied Japan, and a beautiful young Japanese girl, and how they fell in love, and married in Japan and came to America. There were difficulties with the girl’s father and with the boy’s mother, and there was a child. Pearl Buck is a genius in her illustration of sensitivity in the nuance of human emotion. The storyline is a masterpiece.
Indeed, the powers of evil run rampant through our world, crushing all manner of life under its remorseless treads, and it is the light in the eye of love, between strangers who find truth in one another’s heart, between a mother and her child, that will keep the meaning of our lives on this planet intact for tomorrow forever.

Not as emotional reading, perhaps, but some great food in there!
