He dreamed of traveling to the Amazon rainforest and exploring and mapping what has not yet been touched by man. Here he was, sitting in his canoe, on the undiscovered river. He had prepared for years for this and decided it would be best for him to make his first journey alone, despite others opinions. As Barry looked around, he marveled at the lush green plants, he was an easily distractible man; he often let this get to him. As he was taking in the beautiful scenery,

On Christopher journey he decided to enter the Alaskan turran with basically nothing, on his journey to Alaska people stopped him along the way offering him items to help insure his safety in the upcoming winter. Chris was foolish like the man he did not prepare as much as he needed to while coming into winter. While, Chris was on his journey he came across a trailer and decides that is where he was going to reside for the next couple of weeks. He was foolish and simple only bringing one bag of rice to help in survive in the wilderness, little did he know he was going to be stuck there for awhile. While Chris was adventuring out in the turran, the the river he crossed to get to the trailer (where he lives) started to get higher and was fericing flowing with water, making it impossible to cross.
In the first scene we see it as a place of hope, where the boys are able to rest and talk about their plans of the future. The end of the novel presents the lake as a place of false hope. Lennie is led to believe that if he meets George there that they will be able to move onto the next job and everything will be okay, but meeting George there actually leads to his death. The lake was a place of hope for Lennie, a safe place. The lake could in reality have stood for a false hope or an honest sense of hope throughout the whole novel.
Perhaps, bonding with nature, being in isolation and living off the land, would bring a sense of peace to his otherwise crazy mental state he was in. His journey begins in a deserted area of northern Michigan, where from a hilltop he can see a lake. There is no town, just a charred over country, this was all that was left of a town called Seney. Nick is hoping to leave behind his past of desperation to find a new rich, colorful life. On the way to the river, after leaving he train, he stops at a bridge to watch the trout in the stream below.
That is exactly what he is doing driving around the lake, trying to trigger positive images from his life but he is not able to, he just keeps going around and around the lake like the sprinkler. The Song Tra Bong River is a symbol of the once pure lake that would turn to mud and create a disaster that would overflow his life for a long time, if not forever. Norman explains that the river “was exactly like any other river, nothing special” but in the wet seasons that “the rains never stopped, not once, and so after a few days the Song Tra Bong overflowed its banks and the land turned into a deep, thick muck” (O’Brien, 135). This represents the turning point in his life from clear and simple to a never ending rain turning the river into muck. During the war his life felt heavy and difficult to get through.
Everything past the bait shop is just nature and occasional farms. I really enjoy the outdoor nature feeling especially during the summer. I always look out the window at all the different trees and wildlife. When we get close my dad begins to drive very slowly due to the giant ditches in the dirt “road”. My dad stops after each ditch and plans out how he is going to get around the next one without his car slipping into it.
Ralph continually imagines that “When [his dad] gets leave, he’ll come and rescue [them]”(7). However, Piggy’s glasses allow him to not only see far objects, but also think about their future on the island realistically. Piggy knows that Ralph’s dad is not going to find them. Hence, he suggests that they need to start figuring a way out on their own to survive their days or even years on the island. Thus, while all the boys on the island are practically doing nothing, Piggy comes up with an idea of making a sundial to keep track of the time and complete essential tasks.
Around the world, people try to find the job that they are content with doing for the rest of their life. People often change jobs many times before they actually find that job. In Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea, the old man found his job that he was happy doing for the rest of his life. That job was being a fisherman. The old man was content with all of the highs and lows that the job offered him.
Mandie Morin Out of shape and out of breath, I stumbled through the overgrown grass. The trail I was struggling with never seemed to tire me as a child. Justifiably, I didn’t work twelve hours a day at an office job at nine years old. With pebbles in my shoes, I was headed to my late Uncle Jeff’s camp. I spent all of my childhood summers splashing in the river, painting several pictures of trees, and being eaten by mosquitos at that camp.
