BOOK OF THE WEEK
I have tried reading Dante’s Inferno in the past, but was never able to finish it.
Finally, I finished the story as told in modern english. However, I am strangely unsatisfied. I wish I had read something closer to the original.
I have a 2020 retro edition of Dante’s Inferno that was translated by The Rev. Henry Francis Cary back in 1861 that included the M Gustave Doré illustrations. I’m going to tackle that version next.
Dante’s Inferno in Modern English (2014)
Translated By Douglas Neff
Inferno (Italian for “Hell”) is the first part of Italian writer Dante Alighieri’s 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is followed by Purgatorio and Paradiso.
The Inferno describes Dante’s journey through Hell, guided by the ancient Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, Hell is depicted as nine concentric circles of torment located within the Earth; it is the “realm … of those who have rejected spiritual values by yielding to bestial appetites or violence, or by perverting their human intellect to fraud or malice against their fellowmen”.

MOVIE OF THE WEEK
It didn’t take me long to lose interest in this film and stop watching.

Look Both Ways (2022)
I think the Gwyneth Paltrow film Sliding Doors (1998) was so much better.
Helen Quilley gets fired from her public relations job. As she leaves the office building, she drops an earring in the lift, and a man picks it up for her. She rushes for her train on the London Underground but misses it as the train doors are closed; but the film then rewinds, and the scene is replayed, except that now she manages to board the train. The film continues, alternating between the two storylines in which different events ensue (Source Wikipedia).

2017 Trip to Peru
Travel provides a wealth of knowledge and I encourage people to go someone they have never been, at least once this year. It doesn’t have to be a foreign destination, it just needs to be somewhere different. There isn’t anything like seeing a place for the first time.
While on this trip trip to Peru, we visited Mucho Picchu, the Indian made floating reed islands in Lake Titicaca, Cusco (The Inca Capital), and many other places.
Isn’t this the truth!
