Pop quiz: Is this a psychological condition?
I missed a movie because I spent the last two hours reading and alternating between reading: German articles about the Dominican observant movement in the 14th century, the reforms advocated by various groups for Franciscan Spirituals (and looking for an online Latin copy of the Constitutiones Narbonenses; they’re all in Europe…mostly), the complete text of the Pali Canon according to the 1960s Burmese redaction (mostly the second “basket”), commentaries on the concept of anatta in Buddhism (compared to Hindu thought), the life of the Orthodox hieromonk Seraphim Rose (and listening to a lecture of his), the history of Jainism, and various frontpage links on Reddit. All while listening to Vietnamese music.
The music just switched to Carly Rae Jepsen.
So it’s OK now, right?
Yours in Christ,
