I'm in a thinking mood right now. I've been thinking about the British government, Islam, what to do with my life as a single person, and Israel. This all started because our local Generation Joshua club is meeting tonight and I need to be prepared to discuss Constitutional Law, which through reading Blackstone's commentaries led to thinking about the British government, and then I started a pamphlet by our Pastor about Natural Law, which reminded me about the Chalcedon magazine about Islam(The perennial clash: Christianity vs. Islam, 2002), which led to Israel and thinking "I'd really like to visit Israel, what should I do with my single life?"
My mind just wanders about like a butterfly.
Anyway, here is an interview of an Israeli soldier about the short war back in July. Michael Totten always has interesting and enlightening blog posts about the middle east.
I haven't had time to read any poetry yet, but I am learning words like "promulgation" and "pusillanimous". Yes, I admit, those words were not previously in my vocabulary. Right now though, it is time for coffee break(one of the best customs of a Swedish town) and a quick trip to the library to hopefully pick up "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead man's chest" to counter-act all this thinking.
