Wednesday turned out to be a decent day with a hike down to the first stump and my knee exercises. I packed a little more stuff up but I am still unsure of how many books I should take. I probably am taking over 200 books and that may be excessive. I ended up riding my bike along the river for a half hour after having a nice long chat with Devon Lee. What a smart and interesting guy. He certainly taught me a lot about context in African American literature. After Dr. Trivedi approved it, I did start taking the stuff that David Hamilton brought me and I hope it helps with my lupus
Thursday was a tough morning to get up. I struggled and finally got out of bed about 8:30. I did my knee exercises and then forced myself to go a hike to the big white pine. I rested some more and then got ready to go see Jen. I got some boxes from ABC store in Christiansburg and then got 5 more at Radford so I am making progress on boxes. My meeting with Jen went well and I didn’t get too emotional. She was very sharp on Luke Chapter 4 and she had more insight into how I have to be sensitive to small changes in my relationship to the Holy Spirit. She also said a quite powerful prayer for me.
