Escape from Purgatory by JP-Talma Escape from Purgatory by JP-Talma
Fractal thingy 567

I just need to start by saying that as a person who's religious life does not extend after my baptism before I was one year old, I don't really know anything about Purgatory.... I tried to look it up on Wikipedia, but it appears that everyone had a slightly different opinion on what it is.... I always thought it was a halfway between heaven and hell... But some seem to say otherwise... So I still only half know... I just like how the word sounds :p

I got to use the radial blur variation for the first time and actually feel like it helped :D So I feel very clever with myself now, lol.

For Dante, Purgatory is a place standing in between Hell and Paradise, where the souls of those who shall be forgiven pay for their sins in a way that is much lighter than what is done in Hell. After a time of trial and suffering, they are finally purified in the river of Heaven, and they can thus ascend to Paradise.

As a side note, my nickname comes from that river. :)

I'm actually an atheist, and for an atheist, the name sure sounds religious. But I love Dante's Divine Comedy so much that I couldn't help it. =P

I'm an atheist too...but religion makes the best concepts and fancy words :D I think it's important to know a little about religion, even of you don't believe in it.
