Paradise Lake Candlewood Lake is a place in this world where I feel free. It is a place where reality is non-existent and all that lives is perfection. Just imagine a quiet autumn evening, a soft wind caressing your neck. You gaze up at a towering tree, as it dispenses its leaves onto the earth below. Finally, you watch the sunset’s reflection on the water, as the daylight slowly begins to dim from the sky. This is where I grew up as a child, and I could not be more blessed. To enter the lake community, you took a drive through a small forest-like passage way. The colors of the flowers treat the eyes to the experience of a lifetime, as the weeping willows shield you from the world above. The crisp, fresh air nibbles at your skin, as the scent of a barbeque in the distance makes your stomach rumble. After a quick journey you arrive at hillside view over a looking the lake. The water is as still as a sleeping baby, except for the ripples that splash on shore. It is like the lake is owed an initial respect of silence to truly admire its beauty. If you take a listen, music of the birds are filling your ears. The hummingbirds in the sky chirp their treble melodies, as the woodpecker’s tree percussion keeps it all together. Squirrels are out and about looking for acorns the trees are nice enough to share. As you walk closer to the water, you see a rowboat docked up on the shore, and decide that a boat ride would be worth your time. Undoing the rope, you send the boat floating onto the water. The sky is now quite dark and there is newborn life around the lake area. A school of hundreds of fish pass the boat, never leaving each other’s side. In the surrounding woods, the wild wolves howl to you as if they were calling your name. The lake seems to go on forever, as you paddle toward a tiny island. The fog has just settled in on the horizon, and the sense of sight is no longer of use. When arriving at the island, you dock the boat, and step foot on shore. The gravelly sand massages your toes as
The Problem with Evil in Paradise Lost
The idea of evil in John Milton’s, “Paradise Lost” is tricky because it makes for several problems that we see throughout the poem. The question that stems from this is, “Why is evil a thing? Why is there evil in the world?” These questions of course then lead us to the questions, “Why did God unchain Satan in Hell?” and “Why not just keep Satan Good in the first place?” For God, keeping Satan chained to the lake of fire would have been no problem and evil…

Paradise Lost and the fall of man: Milton versus Genesis
Milton adapted and elaborated on the Book of Genesis to create an epic poem he titled Paradise Lost in order to better grab the readers attention. By fictionalizing the story of the fall of man it became more understanding, more believable, more emphatic, and more relatable to the reader. Often outspoken against Catholocism, Milton used his stories to promote Protestantism. His version is much longer than the Biblical version…
Every year my family and I take a camping trip to Brantingham Lake. As soon as I see that dark green destination sign saying “Brantingham” I get a tingly feeling in my stomach that makes me happy. The camp we rent is secluded on the edge of a peninsula. The camp can only be reached by driving on a terrifying narrow dirt road. On either side, there is a dangerous steep drop leading straight into the lake. As I approach the dirt road a mixture of feelings overcome me. My heart begins…

umbilical cord and placenta weren’t compromised. This news was a great relief to us, and we also found out we were going to have a baby boy and his name would be Nikolas William Durgan.
Since it was Memorial Day weekend, we planned to go camping at Loon Lake, which is about 45 minutes to an hour away. We left on Saturday morning (May 24). While on our way I had to pee, since we were on a trail in the middle of the woods, I peed on the ground and had to drip dry! (I know…gross!). I got back in the truck…
