3/02/05 '2 MEN'

ONE MAN WAS NAMED MR. THORNE---THE OTHER MAN WAS NAMED MR. ELVILLE--THEY LIVED NEXT DOOR TO EACH OTHER---MR. THORNE LIVED IN A BLUE HOUSE--MR. ELVILLE LIVED IN A RED HOUSE--THEY WERE VERY CLOSE FRIENDS--

BASICALLY BOTH MEN HAD VERY SIMILIAR PHILOSOPHIES ABOUT LIFE--BOTH WERE PESSIMISTS---BUT EACH HAD AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT APPROACH TO LIFE--

MR. THORNE WAS CONSIDERED A GENTLEMAN TO HIS FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES--THE FATHER OF MR. THORNE WAS A SHIP CAPTAIN--THIS IN THE DAYS OF WIND SAILING WOODEN MERCHANT SHIPS--ONE DAY MR. THORNE'S FATHER LEFT THE EAST COAST ON A FREIGHT SAILING MISSION--HE NEVER RETURNED AND WAS NEVER FOUND--VANISHED -------THIS JUST ONE TERRIBLE EVENT IN MR. THORNE'S LIFE--MR. THORNE WAS A WELL RESPECCTED MAN--IN SOCIETY AND IN BUSINESS--MR. THORNE HAD THE ABILITY TO ACCEPT LIFE AS IT IS AND MOVE ON--

ON THE OTHER HAND-MR. ELVILLE WAS WHAT WE MIGHT SAY -JUST THE OPPOSITE---HE WANTED ANSWERS--HE TOOK A JOB ON A SAILING VESSEL AND SAILED AROUND THE TIP OF SOUTH AMERICA AND ACROSS THE PACIFIC--HERE HE JUMPED SHIP--MR. ELVILLE WAS MADLY SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS--HE THOUGHT HE WOULD FIND THESE ANSWERS BY SEEING THE WORLD SO TO SPEAK--LATER HE TOOK A JOB ON ANOTHER SHIP AND WAS ABLE TO RETURN TO HIS HOME--IN THE UNITED STATES OF COURSE--AND WROTE A FAMOUS NOVEL--BASICALLY ABOUT A SHIP CAPTAIN WITH REVENGE TOWARD A GREAT WHALE-

MR. THORNE AND MR. ELVILLE LIVED A NORMAL LENGTH OF YEARS--MR. THORNE WAS MUCH HAPPIER THAN MR. ELVILLE--NEITHER CHANGED THEIR VIEWS OF LIFE --

STRANGE HOW DIVERSIFIED WE ARE AND WHAT EFFECT IT CAN HAVE ON OUR LIVES--AS HAS BEEN SAID--"DON'T ASK FOR ANSWERS"--
