A busy day for Sparrow on The Diary of a Nobody. First, he mows the lawn, at a new setting, no less, then the retailer is a dead sprint and when he reports for duty at Hotel A the police are on the phone and soon to be on scene.
The Thought for the Day is from earlier this year, from Deng Ming-Dao, author of 365 Tao, a book of thoughts for each day of the year. It is a book that has provided several Thoughts for the Day. Today’s Thought talks about overcoming one ownself, something we all must do because I have learned from experience that the biggest obstacle between me and what I want out of life generally looks me in the mirror every morning.
We are almost done with the first draft of Criminals, Courtesans and Constables. Not quite. We thought we were done, but we really weren’t, there is still a bit more to go.
On This Date:
In 1978 – The Mormon Church allows black men to serve as priests for the first time in its 148-year history.

Have a good day,
