Man, 64, Houston, Texxas,
Dear friend. I am pulling my hair out here in this buckle of the bible belt entirely alone among religious fanatics. Even my wife goes to church, listens to religious music, and hangs on to her religion for dear life. She doesn't preach, so that's ok, but she and her family, and mine, are all Jesus people and I am always a dark cloud over their horrible conversations. Arg.
Total escape is possible, possibly, but a temporary interlude with people who have brains would be grand. Somewhere in East Texas would be good. A grown woman who needs some company would be more good. (better to northerners)
