      When I was growing up there were two dance halls in the country that had the reputation of illegal drinking, fighting, and even a few killings. These negative connotations told me that they were places I should not be going to as a teenager or I would be in huge trouble with my parents. Simply knowing the reputations of these places told me to stay away from them.

      Long, long ago, when I was in elementary school, the library became my special place. It was a place of refuge after the death of my father; it was my protected place to escape my home life. The librarian, Mrs. Hall, taught me that I could pick any book off the shelf and I could pretend to be any character in that story. This library became my suit of armor. I haven’t visited my home state in more than 30 years but to this day, I can still smell the pages of those books. I can still hear the hushed tones of Mrs. Hall telling me everything was going to be ok. And I still pick a character to pretend to be in every book I read.

      The Jordan River was an extremely important place because it is where the Israelites crossed through to enter the Promised Lane and it was where John baptized repentant believers into the promise of an eternal land .

      I have been traveling to Tennessee for the past year and a half. On my first trip, I found an old covered bridge over a small river. Every time I travel, I always go to my little spot. It is absolutely beautiful and the most peaceful place I’ve ever been. It’s my most favorite place on earth.

      Our family spent about three years off and on living in Cambridge, England. To us this was a place for scholars, for the learnt and it had a special atmosphere about it. People there seemed to enjoy reading and appreciated beauty. At the open market of the town center, where old books and fresh flowers were brought in daily, people would purchase them like hot cakes. By noon none of these were left except for the fruits and the groceries. To us, it was an intellectual miniature British Disneyland.

      The place I live in is often associated with a plural society, tropical climates, attractive tourist locations, and various food types. You may have to be extra sensitive to each other cultures and language, as a particular word in one language may have different or wrong meaning in other languages.
