 Song mood: Animal by Def Leppard. Good old 80's British rock.  I saw them in concert once, at a state fair in South Dakota.

I got my first COVID shot, and it's kicking my ass.  I hurt all over and the arm I got the shot in hurts way more.  Not nearly as bad real COVID, but still.

So, it is a good thing I did my arm work out last night.  After doing exercises last night, I was out of breath.  I thought to myself that recovering my strength will be a long process.

I started the Taoist Breathing online course last night.  I needed to work on my breathing.  It has been rather shallow for a while.  The course also helps the meditation process, which in turn will help with focusing issues.


So tonight is watching mysteries, or reading mysteries, or both.


I'll probably visit my mum in Fargo this weekend.  A six to seven hour drive may be rough.  I used to do those all the time when I was younger.


I will continue to work my projects, just not tonight.

Song mood: Mysterious Ways by U2. Currently I’m listening to The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan.  I’ve listened to a couple of novellas that she wrote where her detective Cormac Reilly briefly shows up in and liked them.  This is the first book with her star detective.  Between McTiernan and Trevor on who writes better suspense, I would say hands down McTiernan.   A person who writes mysteries as a genre follow a set of conventions so that the reader isn’t in a state of confusion.  One great example is putting dates before each section or series of sections.  Literary writers don’t follow conventions and the confusion at times come from the writing.  Where I say, let the characters mislead the reader not the writing itself. I am enjoying The Ruin .  It’s nice to get back to a solid mystery. I continue to walk at the lake.  Although, it’s a modified path where I get around 2.5 miles instead 4 miles.  I still need to figure out what to do for exercise in the winter.  I want to get a rowing m

Anticipated Books of 2021

For me, the two most anticipated books are both by Silvia Moreno-Garcia.  The first one is Certain Dark Things to be released 7 September and the second is Velvet is the Night to be released 17 August.  Both are after my birthday so they can’t be my birthday book.  Which is too bad.  Garcia proved she could very write well with Mexican Gothic .  I’m inclined to believe she is the best writer out there. Currently I’m listening to Untamed Shores , Garcia’s thriller that was released last year.  It is similar to Mexican Gothic except without the elements of horror. Speaking of the birthday book, I finally chose the one.  And this time there will be no hiccups.  This year’s birthday book will be: The Album of Dr. Moreau by Daryl Gregory.  The book is set to be released on 18 May.  Three months before my birthday and if the book is to be pushed out, I think it would about a month or so.  It’s a murder mystery that involves a boy band formed by the animal people from The Island of Doctor
