To start off the poem, Soto used imagery to set the scene and allow the reader to understand what the poem is all about;"They leap barefoot to the store, sweetness on their tongues"(5-6). This quote is a superb example of imagery because it gives detail in one sentence to let the reader imagine the scene. Using imagery, this quote demonstrates how poor the kids were in the area and the neediness of a plain store that they even have “sweetness on their tongues”(41-44). To convey his meaning, Soto used a metaphor to show how unsatisfied he is with his life. “A brown kid getting across: “he’s like me”, I tell my daughter and she stops her mouth.
They both lived appreciating the beauty of nature and chose to take the challenges and live independently with freedom in their hands. McCandles and Ruess have similar views about the wilderness that is very different from most people. Most people would see the wild as a very dangerous place and no human beings should choose to live there unless if you’re insane enough to harm yourself. However, for McCandles and Ruess entering the wild and living there was their biggest dream that they want to achieve no matter how difficult it would be, for they saw it as another adventure that they want to experience.
He is also wearing a cowboy hat, and is leaning a arm on a pole looking somewhere past the camera.

"Tramping is too easy with all this money. My days were more exciting when I was penniless and had to forage around for my next meal." (Krakauer p. 33) Although these two shared similar relationships towards nature they lacked connection with the purpose they sought for. The leaving for Chris was an escape route, a disappearance from an illusion that slowly took over his world, but mostly it was a spiritual and mental cleanse due to his disturbed mind.
Chris McCandless moved out of his comfort zone into a place he's completely unfamiliar with and filled with many challenges to be faced. A great quote from the books said: "The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun" (57). Many people can relate to this, because they too have dreams they are afraid to pursue. Nowadays people are fine with living regular everday comfortable lives instead of risking their comfort because they're afraid to pursue their dreams just because it might be too hard or difficult for them to achieve.
Initial Assessment Garnet from the novel Keeper N’ Me seems like a rather resourceful individual that has relied mainly on himself to navigate through life ever since he aged out of the foster care system. The way in which he chose to survive during this time may have been influenced by the pervasively negative stereotypes against Indigenous people, his detachment from his community, family, and heritage, as well as the observed desire to fit in or belong. Garnet’s primary presenting clinical issues seem to be a diminished sense of self and self-esteem. This may be due to growing up in all-white households and schools with no formal education about his family history/heritage or of Indigenous teachings in general. The knowledge that he was able to gather from within these
The first stage of the hero 's quest as outlined by Campbell is the ‘Departure’ that typically begins with a "Call to Adventure" in Campbell 's terms. The movie opens with the hero, Shrek, existing comfortably in his everyday ordinary world. In Shrek’s swamp he enjoys and has everything he needs to get by, for example the mud for bathing, the slugs for food, and a nearby village where he can horrify when he gets bored.

Unfortunately, the story folds into such that the exterior world would intrude into Shrek’s solitude.

The unshorn fields, boundless and beautiful" (Bryant 495). Bryant describes the prairies in extreme detail comparing them to various things and stated that man had no part in its creating "Man hath no part in all this glorious work" (Bryant 496). Bryant continues to describe the prairies until as he put it "A fresher wind sweeps by, and breaks my dream". There we see the power of nature and how it captivated Bryant and made him forget everything else until he realizes "I am in the wilderness alone" (Bryant 498).

In the comedic world, confidence is a major key, and a mentor could restore Martin’s confidence by simply being there for him in times of loneliness and doubt. Moreover, while reminiscing on venturing out to travel the country alone like a comedic pioneer, Martin, in an ironic statement, reveals to the reader, “There were no mentors to tell me what to do; There were no guidebooks for doing stand-up. Everything was learned in practice, and the lonely road, with no critical eyes watching, was the place to dig up my boldest, or dumbest ideas and put them onstage” (132). Undoubtedly, Martin explains to the reader in his journey to success in show business that he had no mentor, and no one to tell him yes or no. He also refers to his metaphorical and physical journey as a “lonely road,” and emphasizes he had
Utopia- an imagined place or state in which everything is perfect. This is can also be referred to “The White City” in which Chicago was named for its enchanting and beautiful World’s Fair hosted in 1893. The city ultimately changed in just sixteen-months from ugly and crime-filled streets to what many claimed to be a dream. This dream like concept, for many, was easy to be hold, but for numerous women who came to Chicago it was a living, breathing nightmare. Granted that many people came for the fair, many women came before the fair looking for jobs.
