The city of Hattiesburg lies in the state of Mississippi west of Richton. It is very small and obviously could not accommodate all of the actions described. Like the setting of this journal, the characters and actions, too, are fictitious.
Balance among all things. The Aristotilean Mean. Virtue as the mean between two vices. The ups and the downs of life. It's all about taking it in stride and just riding the rollercoaster of life.
I've lived in Mississippi, Washington (state), and South Carolina. After trips to places such as England, Paris, Alaska, Jamaica, Rome, Greece, and Amsterdam, I've fallen in love with both traveling and life. I'm weird, but I embrace it. I want to know about everything and I want to do everything. I love bike riding and hiking and tennis, but I balance that out with plenty of geekiness in my love for computers and programming and web design and writing poetry. I also love reading!
"26. And he said unto them, 'If a man told God that he wanted most of all to help the suffering world, no matter the price to himself, and God answered and told him what he must do, should the man do as he is told?'
27. 'Of course, Master!' cried the many. 'It should be pleasure for him to suffer the tortures of hell itself, should God ask it!'
28. 'No matter what those tortures, nor how difficult the task?'
29. 'Honor to be hanged, glory to be nailed to a tree and burned, if so be that God has asked,' said they.
30. 'And what would you do,' the Master said unto the multitude, 'if God spoke directly to your face and said, 'I COMMAND THAT YOU BE HAPPY IN THE WORLD AS LONG AS YOU LIVE.' What would you do then?'
31. And the multitude was silent, and not a voice, not a sound was heard upon the hillsides, across the valleys where they stood."
