In the Stacks

The training I'm receiving for soul retrieval* is now in a research phase. I'm called to study a wide variety of topics ranging from natural law physics (esp. law of gravity, and the "fictitious" forces of centripetal and centrifugal force), geometry (for dummies), and some research into what Edgar Cayce had to say about the Akashic records. I also want to read about the layers of the earth's atmosphere, especially about what goes on in the mesosphere.

I'm dusting off my reader's card for the Library of Congress - might even take the orientation again. Amazon.com is not the right resource for this project. Fine by me! - I love being a bookworm, especially at the Library of Congress, my spectacular neighborhood library.

A part of my Plan to Stay Sane includes life-long learning. Studying is always a good thing, always. Oh yeah!

*I've read about contemporary American soul retrieval, a process that sounds very psychological. The shaman travels in other realms searching for lost bits of identity to retrieve and restore to the client. What I'm learning is not about re-assembling identity at all. Until I can think of what to call it, though, "soul retrieval" will have to do.

I can just see you hunkered down in the stacks at the L of C, demanding that they bring you yet more books.

I love that place where they have the rarest of books. I actually met someone there once whom I dated for a while. Library people are a breed apart from the rest. He gave me a copy of Man's Fate by Andre Malraux, which I've never read. Almost 40 years late, maybe I'll get it down off the bookshelf.

I'd love to just pop into the Library of Congress and check out a book! What an amazing neighborhood benefit! :)

Does this involve past life exploration? Looking for guinea pigs?

Life long learning is so important!

I'm completely with you regarding life-long learning.

And I'm hoping you'll continue to share with us as you learn more about soul retrieval! I'm not exactly sure what that means, but the term is very intriguing.

how I envy you that the loc is in your hood!! what a great place to get lost in.

speaking of great this photograph totally rocks! I love the composition and the colors of the sky.

I'm trying to wean myself off amazon and if I buy books buy them at an independent bookshop....I might pay a bit more, but I'm helping the cause, supporting good folks (not that there aren't good folks that work at amazon) and it's local!! think global, act local!

let's hear it for lifelong learning!

did I ever tell you when I was in high school I worked in a work/study program with the library of congress! although I was based at a different location - but when I had to go to the mothership I was in heaven!! probably explains much about me......
