Reading in the evening
We spent the entire day cleaning cleaning cleaning, and here we are this evening relaxing. The three of us read.
Frank is reading a book called "The Cosmic Landscape: String Theory and the Illusion of Intelligent Design," by Leonard Susskind. He was reading about the theory that at every given moment, there actually exist an infinite number of alternate realities, with different variables. But they all exist at this exact moment.
And I was reading "The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightment," by Eckhart Tolle. I am reading about the fact that the past and the future are only constructs of the ego. The only reality is the now, and what is exactly happening at this point in time.
(Nick, of course, is reading "Flush" by Carl Hiassen, about some kids trying to help their dad who got in trouble for trying to expose someone who was polluting the environment.)
