Patricia Villani Patricia “Trish” Villani-Bugg was known for infectious smile and laugh. While she was not adapted at what some may consider” small talk” those close to her could count on her quick wit to brighten up any situation. Trish also was always the first to lend aid to those in need and was a constant support and cheerleader for those whom she was closest to. Part of Trish’s spirituality took form in musical notes. Those of us who knew her well, knew that she expressed herself through the love of music and that music was the catalyst for much of her written works.
Charles, Although I agree that Whitman’s “Song of Myself” was lengthy, I found the piece to be very enjoyable. I was compelled to research for meaning and explanations while reading his piece. The experience allowed me to interact versus just read. If a poet received awards for interaction, Whitman would have won the biggest prize. Dickinson’s poem was not appealing to me as much.
She is usually optimistic, unless something emotionally or mentally horrendous happens. The meaning of my name matches me very well because I love romantic movies and I read for my freetime. I think I am beautiful in my own way and I consider myself clever and intelligent. I usually have a happy aura and I never really find someone who hates me. I also love to sing, artistic, and i play many
“The highly sensitive tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive (just as Aron’s husband had described her). They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty”( Cain 136).
It acts a clear shift in tone and makes the impact you’re going for even more meaningful. The form works well since some natural pauses fall right before a surprise, and making the lines too much longer would make it feel a little cheesy, I think. I’m not sure if the title is appropriate though because you don’t describe anyone skating, only two people in a chair. I think that the second half could be expanded to describe this relationship and the speaker’s feelings even more. Despite this, I really admire how honest and relatable all of your poems
When sadness overcomes people, they often devote themself to literature to focus on another world. Helping them to get over their own sorrow, they read poems such as “The Raven”. Those poems are very popular and loved for such a long time. The reason for that is that people read it and the poem makes them feel something, it makes them think or it helps them in a hard time. One example for that is “The Raven”.
It seems as though jealousy and hypocrisy have been intertwined with parts of the church since it was established. Texas Tech University’s production of Carlisle Floyd’s opera Susannah captures a situation in which a church community makes envious assumptions of an innocent girl and ruin not only her identity but her sense of self. I attended the opera’s opening night on Friday, March 31, 2017, at the Allen Theatre in the Student Union where Chong Wang brilliantly played the part of Susannah. As I waited for the opera to begin, I glanced around the auditorium and noticed a few families, students, and adults from the Lubbock community, so I didn’t know what to expect from the show. The stage set an unassuming atmosphere due to the lack of scenery
Billie Holiday could be considered one of the most influential women in jazz, if not one of the most influential women in general. She was one of the first to incorporate anti-racist ideals and progressive thoughts through the outlet of music, influencing many others down the road. Her intense desire for equality and change could be due to the immense amounts of hardship during her younger years, which may have very well carried over into her adult singing career. Billie Holiday was abandoned at a very young age as her father was out of the picture and her mother could not care for her, seeing as her mother was only 13 and barely an adult herself (Holiday, 1992). Born in 1915, Holiday was put into the care of her extended family.
I was going on a trip to Berwyn, Illinois with my family to meet my father’s youngest brother and his family. The trip was quite short, but my uncle had told us to hail a taxi and meet up at the Fitzgerald’s Sidebar, in Berwyn. I didn’t have the slightest idea of the impression of the location we were heading to from the airport until we reached the place. I was in complete shock because a jazz band was playing the style of music that my uncle knew that I was very fond of right in front of us. As we came into the sidebar there were no crowds of people, meaning it was mainly just my family.
The morning of May 1st was a beautiful and clear sunny day. The dogs were being let outside in the freshly grown green grass and the cat doors to the outside area were opened. The cats ventured out to their fenced in outdoor area, lazily spreading themselves out in the morning light to sun bathe. The veterinarians were beginning to gather – there were three of them at this shelter – punching in for their shifts and the veterinary technicians were already starting on exams of dogs yet to be admitted into the animal shelter. There were only about ten of them waiting in the spacious quarantine kennels so the morning check-ins only took about an hour, so the technicians could begin at 11 o’clock in the morning and be finished in enough time to
“She wanted her son to go there as well, but because of affirmative action or minority something...her son wasn’t accepted” (Rankine 13). This quote is interesting to me because it reminds of the case Grutter v. Bollinger, where a white female applicant to the University of Michigan Law School sued the school for violating her Fourteenth Amendment because they denied her admission. She lost in the end, but the ideology that minorities are more easily accepted into schools than whites is still thought and said by some white Americans today. The importance this quote serves to the poem is that the quote is another example of a microaggression that the author wants the reader to understand happens. “She says she grabbed the stranger’s arm and
