Daily Journal, Wednesday, November 2nd, 2022

It's the beginning of the month, and trying to get it started as best as I can.  Still having trouble sleeping, and again it's more than a simple solution.  Getting going today was slow going, no doubt because of my trouble sleeping.  However I feel good about my process today, in a very general sense I'm taking care of myself.Paid my rent today.  Much to say about where I'm living.Right now I'm at the Hennepin County Central Library.  A place where I have avoided for years.  My preference is Ridgedale Library.

Norse or "Viking" music

Just wanted to make a note and share a video that I watch (again) of what I think is a traditional Norse song.  Not sure if it's Norwegian, or just generally Norse or Scandinavian. 

This one I watched (again) today is one that is rather haunting in it's content and presentation.  I'm including at least a couple versions.

Screen Entertainment

Most every time I come to the library I watch either a movie, or TV series online, or on dvd.

Today, I watched 2 episodes of the (new) SWAT series, and one of the FBI series online.  Just as a note, this FBI episode left me with bad feeling.  I plan to say much, much more about the whole entertainment industry, especially TV.  But, not right now.  Suffice it to say that the FBI episode that left me with a bad feeling was either from the basic content of the episode, or the way they presented it.  Just to say it, there is a great deal about our day to day lives that reveal the deeper issues that matter.  More about that later.

Daily Journal, Saturday, November 5th, 2022

I woke up, got up mostly rested.  Wanted to get going, continue pushing myself to move my daily routine earlier in the day. 

Off and on for several years I've been developing daily sheets, logs and lists, to help me in many ways.  My purpose is meant and has been rather deeply influential, for a reason.  Some other time, I will say and write more about these sheets I've been developing.

I stretch and do squats every day with few exceptions.  I've been slowly increasing the number of sets.

Today, left for Ridgedale Library at 10:45am, didn't get here until 12noon.

Hennepin County Ridgedale Library

Feedback I sent to the Hennepin County Library system, through their website, today.


For some years now I have been using the Ridgedale Library, often 3, 4, 5 times a week.  I stopped going to the Central Library for obvious reasons.  The Central Library atmosphere is more than unpleasant!  It is profoundly obnoxious, and even a bit harassing.  If I need to do some kind of important work here at Ridgedale library, and may very well have a limited time to get it done.  Having to deal with this clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clacking would be absolutely rude and stressing!

Today, I noticed a parent and child wooden game I don't know the name of.  However, it can be heard throughout the library.  It's the game where red or blue large dots are slid in through the top to make a string of your own color up down, side to side, or diagonally.

This game is absolutely obnoxious!  And, should be moved to support some appropriate level of quiet in the library.  If people must use headphones to support a sane level of quiet, why would this clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clacking game be out in the general area of the library?!

I just had a conversation with an older staff member, and she was in full agreement with me!  No wonder, since the help desk is right there nearby this clack, clack, clacking game!  I went in to use the bathroom, the clacking was clack, clack, clack, clack, clack, clacking along.  When I came out, they had stopped, and I noticed how different the atmosphere was.  It was very noticeable!

I have been trying to be tolerant of this situation.  However, this tolerance is combined with being very tired of having to speak up about issues that really should be common sense.  Frankly, how can you professionals be so misguided about this?!

Do not try to "explain" anything to me.  Our society needs quiet places to work, read, and use the internet.  I have appreciated the Ridgedale Library very much.  And, I really do understand the issues here.  However, our society needs real-time leadership by example.  I am a lifelong liberal, but the liberal mentality has gone too far, just like the conservative mentality!

Please consider my feedback, and know that I am not alone.
Thank you for your time.

Daily Journal, Friday, November 4, 2022

Today, I had something to do first thing.  Pick up a box of food from Second Harvest Heartland, through a social worker who's office happens to be in my apartment building.

This is where I need to begin to share more personal things.  They're not real serious.  Most all of what I'm doing now is continuing to make the best of what I have to work with.

However, I am very well aware that when I do share, publicly my basic circumstance I will have to deal with public judgement, attitude, condescension, ridicule and any number of other rude, sick reactions the pubic will have.  More than most of these responses or reactions will be from people that actually believe they are "trying" to be "helpful" and would say they're "just trying to be nice." 

Personally, I am very comfortable with my life, my successes throughout, and especially what I have been doing this past 12 years, since 2010!
