THE HERMIT OF SENECA LAKE: My name is J.T. Perry. I am a hermit, but not a recluse. I just prefer to be alone most of the time, with nature + God's creation. I have friends, I shop at Wal-Mart, + I go to church, but I like to live alone in the woods at Seneca Lake. I'm not famous, + I am not an expert on being ahermit, but I want to share my experience because I think my life is interesting + you might think so, too. This is my journal..... DIARY OF A MAD HERMIT: Somebody asked me what I am mad about. They don't understand. I am not angry. I know that everything works according to God's plan, and what man does with his free will is the only thing that screws up the world. I am mad because I have mental illness, but maybe that makes my story interesting to the sane, normal people who don't get to experience the real beaut of God's nature because they are too busy being normal.
