    A Long and Lonely Journey

    Hello!

    If you don't want God, fine, I'll stop being whatever you said you wanted me to be.  God's Kingdom doesn't have to be run by Dad, me and holiness anymore.  But it was nice to get bunch of ideas from the time I was here.  Let's make a whole new world like this one...
