I'm a sort of creative person, seeking the meaning of life . Hard to capture the essence of the mind/brain/soul - but I delight in arguing with ultra-materialists on consciousness. Ah! the smell of a rose and its redness, the smell of a fine wine, a sunset, - great stuff, and all subjective. Oh yeah and actually am Scorpio by 4 hours according to expert astrologer friend - blogger auto-star-sign system missed the fact that I'm on the cusp. Though I agree with Casius when he said "the fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings".

Heim fame, book & pneuma
Wouldn't it be great if Heim's Grand Unified Field theory or Theory of Everything as they say these days replaced String or Brane theory as flavour of the month? Then as one of his few scientific supporters at the moment I would feel myself vindicated. Maybe that involvement may get me more attention than the book http://pabd.com/2005/books/hdeasy . Thunder rolls in the background as the strange May weather changes yet again - it's been sunny but sticky and humid all day, as yesterday. We ate outside at local newly renovated Kirchmuhle Restaurant - nice there on the banks of the river. The cat has taken to lyign on the mat in front of the house all day, for hours on end.

To sleep, perchance to dream
Yes, the passionate black feline did it again - miowed so pitifully and hurled herself against the door until we had to let her in.
I would have read more sci-fi or philosophy but when the cat is there it's early to bed, early to rise.
Sure enough, at 04:30 it"s not hte secret police but the cat, shuffling papers politely to get my attention.
I groan groggily, forcing her to let out one plaintive miow.
That's enough for me. Shrugging off sleep after 4 1/2 hours, I get up slow and easy.
meantime cat has become intersted in ball of paper. I'm having none of that and walk determinedly downstairs. She is trained well enoguh now to give up that playfulness and march after me down to the kitchen, snacks and out the door.
Back to bed for more shuteye. Wake after an hour. Doze for 1/2.
C'est la vie!

Selling page for my book now on-line
I've already had a few people ordering through this site. Check it out! Also, I'm now on Ukauthors.com, under the name Easyd. Some new bits of fiction and philosophy there.
Otherwise, we're taking it easy here on a rainy public holiday. Sunshine comes through now and then so I'll go for a walk before lunch of Schnitzel. Positive developments in the week:
* The space shop at ESOC accepts my book for sale - produced poster for it with mug shot from my old interview days. A bit reddish but it will do.
* Getting into philosophy a bit more - reading Heidegger book again, Bergson & co.##
* Carolyn returns from her 3 day school trip none the worse for wear - needed to catch up on sleep though, as the boys had kept them awake. So she was a bit cranky yesterday eve but after a 12 hur sleep she was bright and cheerful again.
