One of my gentle readers and commenters was just asking about whether, after I finished The Ascent of Mount Carmel, I intended to go on and read The Dark Night of the Soul.

Heh. Funny you should ask that, Wald.

You see, it seems that after I read Book II, Chapter VI, I somehow managed to proceed to read the connected material in Book II, Chapter VII — of The Dark Night of the Soul. Since both books are on the same plan, use the same poem, and explicate the same general areas (although with different concentrations and depth), this mistake was not immediately obvious to me. I then proceeded to return to the pages in my cache — which were the wrong pages. So Chapters 7-16 are from the wrong book.

(It does make it virtually certain that I’ll do The Dark Night of the Soul next, as it means I’ve already done almost a quarter of that book. Though I will have to re-record the credits for those chapters.)

The major problem is that I cannot immediately replace all the Dark Night chapters with Ascent chapters, since that’s going to take a long time to re-record; but if I don’t do that, it’s very likely that the archive.org server where I store the chapters is going to be too full to load anything. I will, however, update the podcast listings as quickly as I can. I will keep the old posts as drafts, and repost a corrected version of them when I do Dark Night on purpose.

“I apologize for the inconvenience and misunderstanding” seems a bit paltry for this magnitude of circumstance, but I do apologize.
