The differences between light and dark, good and bad, are blurred in the Iroquois Creation Story. The narrator captured two different views in this story, blurring the line between what is considered right and wrong. The Iroquois Creation Story does not have just the black and white, but also the gray areas as well. It makes readers question what is really good and what is bad. The overall use of light elements gives the story a light feel, but also has a dark undertone when looked at closely. Overall, the story suggests that although human nature changes, it will always have ties to its heritage, even if the heritage is considered to be bad.
On the beautiful, tropical island of Hawaii, a structure that is not only large, but also deadly and packed with heat, is called the Mauna Loa. In the native Hawaiian language, "Mauna Loa" means “long mountain” and it has definitely earned that name. It is a volcano that towers over Hawaii and is the biggest volcanic structure in the world. This structure is also the most active volcano and mountain in the world. It is located in the south central area of the small island, Hawaii in the United States which is also located on the North Pacific Ocean. The Mauna Loa is one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii. The other volcanoes located on the island state are the Kohala, Mauna Kea, Hualalai and Kilauea. Among all of these natural cliffs, Mauna Loa is by far the biggest. It covers a large area of the island, not to mention rises about 13.680 feet above sea level. There is much to learn about this unique volcanic specimen.
Nature has the ability to lead one to an improved comprehension of life. That is the point that Ralph Waldo Emerson, famous American essayist, wanted to convey to his readers in his long essay, Nature. In the essay, Emerson is saying that each and every person needs to broaden their own unique grasping of the universe that surrounds them. He is expressing this because he believes that people take nature for granted and do not really understand its purpose and impact. The author is stating all of this with a persuasive tone. Emerson wants to coax us to think about nature as more than just eye candy. He wants us to presume that nature has the power to affect and better us. For an author to be successful in his writing, he needs to genuinely make

Hawaii and Yellowstone can be compared and contrasted in many ways. Yellowstone and Hawaii are great places to have a vacation with your family.

Nature is a place of beauty, but not everybody completely understands that. Nature is a place to be alone just by yourself. Nature is there for your comfort as it lays a blanket of trees over your head. Nature is like a friend, but more loyal. It stays true to you as you are its guest. Nature, however, is slowly being forgotten. In today 's time everyone is paranoid and stressed. Nature is the best listener you could ever find. Nature can talk to you, it just doesn 't have speak with words. It provides a relaxing environment for you to just be to yourself. No beep of a phone and nobody else is there. Nature is a mental medic. Everybody likes to socialize and have constant interaction. We are scheduled and organized . People don’t have that extra time to spend alone. This is why people are stressed. They are too jammed and can’t find a way out. Nature doesn’t have a schedule. It is open just for you. It runs 24/7
How can one become one with their environment? Connection with one 's environment was always easier to maintain until the industrial age came into existence. With the birth of modern society came the birth of social responsibilities and burdens unknown to man. In “The Way to Rainy Mountain” and “A place for literature,” Barry Lopez and N. Momaday Momaday explain the impact of lands on its occupants. In “the white heron,” Sarah Jewett explains the feeling of reconnection with one’s inner voice though nature. In “The Way to Rainy Mountain” Momaday explains the connection between the Native Americans and the lands they held until they were forced out of it by the Americans. In “the white heron,” Jewett explains the feeling of reconnection with
By being in contact with the nature there is an ethereal feeling of knowing everything. The air you breathe is the purest of all; the sights you see are the goodness and freshness of the universe. In that moment the whole universe transpires to make that moment yours and you seem to move into a transcended stage of utter joy and serenity. Thoreau held deeply felt political views, opposing slavery and the Mexican-American War. He made a strong case for acting on one's individual conscience and not blindly following laws and government policy. "The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right," he wrote (Thoreau,1854). The timely and inaccurate injustice of society led Thoreau to a new height of revolution and it spooked the immeasurable feeling of human justice we human possess. An average person living about his daily life in the society is somewhat barred from taking those brave acts as he becomes a part of the system. He is morally and subjectively bound to serve the system without raising any voice of slavery or injustice. While Thoreau did what most would have wanted to do, he raised his voice through his work and his most famous tool, his writings. Being in contact with the nature brought out the most of him and it is assured anyone will be guaranteed that feat once they realize the power it
What do you think nature is and how can it contribute to society, and how people feel about it? So far -in the book Anthem- I’ve wondered about this question. In this book there are many ways that nature can make people feel. Also, there’s this character -Equality 7-2521- that at one point got exiled from society and ran to the forest. There’s many reasons in my opinion why he would do this. Society and nature are very big aspects in this book. A lot revolves around these two topics. So the significance of nature in Anthem has many meanings throughout the book. From society being scared of it, how it was uncharted because of that, and also how someone like Equality 7-2521 thrived and became a different and stronger person from being alone in nature.
Henry David Thoreau and Thomas Merton, were two very influential writers who wrote contemplative works about solitude and developing a connection with nature. Thoreau’s most famous work “Walden” discusses the authors experiences during the two years he lived consciously, in a cabin in the woods, along with the multitude of lessons he learned. Thomas Merton, a twentieth century writer, wrote several letters to Rachel Carson discussing the importance of caring for the environment from a Catholic perspective. While both authors are writing from significantly different backgrounds and different perspectives regarding religion, they both argue that by taking a contemplative and more solitary path in life can make a greater connection with nature and a stronger awareness about one’s self.
Smooth, oval rocks lined the bank of the secretive lake. Discarded and neglected; overlaid with spongy moss and choked by fallen, decaying leaves from the unclothed and withering trees above. As the lake swelled around the ashen boulders, icy, black water lifelessly lapped against the long, thin beams of wood holding up a rickety pier. The structure was covered in splinters and ragged, iron nails, and as it reached out into the centre of the sombre lake, it became more and more distant. Half-cut beams lined the sides of the pier, as nettle patches hissed from the shore when the water drew too near. Small, stagnant puddles, on the uneven planks of timber wood reflected the dark, brooding sky above - rarely disturbed by the callous slices of moonlight seeping through the clouds, creating a specular reflection through a ripple in the languid water.
I watched as the big fiery ball climbed above everything else. It shot out orangish-red rays from all direction and made the town brighter. As lovely as the morning was I knew that today wouldn't be horrible. I could only watch from down here, the beautiful shining star.
Nature and Frankenstein compare in their understanding of the relationship between human beings and the natural world because the natural world is an emotional experience and the influence of nature changes the mood drastically.
Many people have different views and opinions in the world living today. There is one place like nowhere else where people are aiming toward a certain goal of relaxation. The park where people can completely relax doing common interest. It is a place that people can escape the harsh and cruelness of the world through enjoying the peace and serenity of nature. Many people don't take into account and admire the surroundings that were created for us. This is why I have chosen to observe my own public park.
