Over Spring Break, my family traveled to Eureka Springs, Arkansas to visit my family that reside in Kansas. Eureka Spring is an amazing town nestled in the Ozark Mountains. On our way, we visited the Precious Moments Chapel and saw a replica of the resurrection of Christ. In Eureka Springs, they have a play performed in the summer called the Passion Play and they also have replica of the resurrection of Christ and the theater is set to look like Bethlehem. Seeing all of these things sparked good conversation with my 12-year-old son, but it also brought back some sad and troublesome memories for myself.
In this poem, Baudelaire is having a conversation with his soul. He regards life as a hospital in which the patients long to change their beds. Baudelaire believes he’ll be happier elsewhere, and asks his soul “where?” He then suggests a variety of places that he knows his soul may take a liking to. There’s Lisbon – which is warm Holland - which is tranquil Batavia – where “the intellect of Europe is married to the beauty of the tropics” Since the soul doesn’t reply to any of the places the poet suggests, the poet questions if the soul desires somewhere where his pain will be pleasure. He then proposes going to the Pole, which is cold and lifeless and resembles death.

When I was a Sophomore in High School my dad had been out of work for a couple and was forced to take a job in Odessa, TX , so he promptly moved to Texas to start his new job. My mother and I had to stay in California so I could finish high school and so she could take care of her parents. From then on, I was only really able to see my dad for a week every month or two and we were unable to keep the strong connection we had before. So as I started my college search I looked into colleges in Texas so I could live closer to him, and that is when I first came across Rice University. I knew with my high school grades I would not have been accepted, so I decided I would perform as well as possible at my State School and hope I could gain an

The two then begin to watch a documentary about cathedrals and this is where the narrator goes through his final and biggest change.

It was a big stoned building that sat on the left side of the street it was on the same street the brown vs board had there march. The Sanctuary is a place where I can get a complete quietness. Even when I have a lot on my mind it just seems like God erases everything that I have on my mind; my last week before I committed to independence community college to play football.
