I took a few days off to spend with the family at the beach. It was a wonderful relaxing time. I was able to read Dante's Inferno and was glad to end it in just a few days of reading. It was a good reminder of the nature of man, that some would choose to go to hell rather than love God. I also got a good taste of just how hot the fires Dante describes are - when I was running through the hot sand dunes.
It was a relief to begin Dante's Purgatory, knowing that there is hope still alive.
