Swiming in Quicksand

Not a great deal happening out here. I mean, I'm sure things are happening Out There, in downtown Ramadi, but I'm feeling really insulated from all of it. I'm finding myself more and more uninterested in discussing politics or the war or whatever, because what needs to be said, has been said. The vast majority of people discussing these topics are unconvincible because they have made up their minds and nothing is going to change them.

I'm reading Lord Jim, by Joseph Conrad. Great book, and I love Conrad's command and use of the English language.

I'm eagerly anticipating some Amazon orders so I can get on with the serious research for my next writing project. As long as I have something entertaining to do which engages my mind, I'm happy. Right now, I'm badly bored.

Lord Jim, Huh? I'll have to put that on my list of books to read. Would a chica like me like it?

Since you're bored, I was talking to a friend about a historical topic, and I told her I would have to run it by you and see what you thought.

What do you make of the fact that the story of Sargon is so close to that of Moses?

What do you make of Gilgamesh being so close to Biblical acount of the flood?

the similar story of Sodom and Gomorrah being found in Pagan religions?
