Our actions in life are reflected in eternity which seems to be an overarching message of the Divine Comedy. The things that we feel we want or need so much in this life are very often our own undoing. While the Inferno is by far the most famous part of the epic poem, it is followed by brighter sequels in purgatorio and paradiso. The Divine Comedy was meant to be an overall message of hope and not despair. We can, as humans, affect our destiny through changing our desires and behaviors.

MOLESKIN: Had a great time today! 

Got to meet Paper Trail for the first time. Looking forward to future conversation with that brother.

YHC and Snookie indulged in some gloriously delicious Schadenfreude over the 2019 Iron Bowel
