It happened while I was practicing improvising on the blues. My playing started awkwardly and clumsily -- the notes plodded out of the horn in a lazy line. I felt my body begin to move with the rhythm of the music, the syncopation coursing through me as my eyes closed. I snapped into consciousness. I was playing better, but disconcertingly, half an hour had flown by without me realizing it.
This is a reality among the people of southern california when the Santa Ana winds take over. The essay “Brush Fire” by Linda Thomas is an emotional piece supported through facts and definitions which express how much the Santa Ana winds mean to her. The second essay discussing the winds is a piece which looks at the effects of the santa ana in almost the opposite way. The similarities and differences in “Brush Fire” by Thomas and “The Santa Ana” by Didion both express how meaningful the Santa Ana winds can be in two different writing styles.
It doesn’t seem too long ago since the day you dropped me off at Iowa State University. For you two, it probably seemed like I was leaving forever, but I returned home many, many times to enjoy your presence. When I’m not at home however, I find myself walking around different parts of Ames to find comfort when I miss you. On the very first weekend I spent here at Iowa State, Austin and I went for a walk.
On his way to Charlestown, he sees a ”phantom” ship called the Somerset, which was a large British war ship. The poem describes the ship as a “phantom,huge black hulk and prison bar” to create a sense of fear and alarm. He had previously
A literary device that was commonly used in both books was allusion. As I was reading both books I would find myself reading references the author has made. In A room with a view they make many allusions relating to art, music, literature, etc. Chapter 6 starts with a reference to Greek mythology. The chapter starts by saying, " It was Phaethon who drove them to Fiesole that memorable day, a youth all irresponsibility and fire, recklessly urging his master 's horses up the stony hill.
Ever since I’ve known about Valleyfair, the U-shaped ride Steel Venom has scared me. There’s just something about a possible concussion and whiplash that doesn’t appeal to me, and yet here I am, finding myself and my friends in the back of the agonizingly long line. All around me I hear, “I love this ride!” and, “This is the best one!” but Steel Venom looks like a metal death trap and I, for one, do not “love this ride.”
The trees are always green and the water is always clean. I have so many memories of playing outside in the snow and getting together with all of the neighborhood kids for a baseball game. Many of those same kids still live in that city today. I am still in contact with some of them. Whenever I go home to visit, I get to see some of them.
I actually flew on a cloud!!” I’m a bit guilty to say that I ignored the rest of her rant. I was thinking about how naive she was and how nice it would be to actually fly. I had seen these man-made birds in the sky a few times. Maybe they could hold people...
My heart sank. At that point I was scared to death. I was loaded onto a stretcher and wheeled out to the helicopter. I heard one of the doctors say under their breath, “This is a lot worse than we thought.”
I don’t know what we felt, we were just quite for like 15 minutes. I just know what I was thinking I was thinking about the times which we spent together since we became friends. I don’t know you guys can feel me or not but yes… everything in my mind was running just like a black and white film, I was constantly playing all those lovely moments over and over again. And I know both of those morons would be doing the same.
It was because my knees refused to allow me to push myself to full speed. I have a disease in both knees called Osgood-Schlatters, it usually develops in young teenagers who are hitting puberty at a fast rate. Most of the time Osgood will go away on its own but mine has been with me since I was in the seventh grade
With tears in my eyes I kept questioning god why this had to be happening to me. The doctors explained to me that my baby got sick from being in my stomach so long after my water broke. I did not want to be away from her, every morning my trips to the NICU were the hardest. Seeing her with tubes, and all the stuff made me upset. But holding her was the most amazing feeling in the world.
I had never in my life felt as loved or accepted as I did at camp. My friend and I continued to go to camp every summer throughout elementary and high school. It didn 't matter what point I was at in my life, camp was a safe haven of love. Each year, I would come and hear a little more about my creator. As great as
On 06-05-2016 at 1143 hours I was dispatched to 2525 Barron Road in reference to a subject in the road yelling. Upon my arrival in the area I located Danny Wilson in the back yard of 2525 Barron Road spraying himself with a water hose. Wilson was acting irate and appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. Wilson was asked multiple times what kind of drugs he had used and he advised marijuana and methamphetamine. Wilson was complaining it was extremely hot and was spraying himself with water and was advising people where chading him.
