The time I spent with my cousins and brother would be a trip that I won’t forget my whole life. A family vacation that I was very excited for was my trip to Jackson Hole Wyoming. This was one of the most anticipated vacations I had, we were going to stay for a week from Christmas to New Year’s eve. My family and I really enjoy skiing and when the chance to go on this trip happened, I remember begging my dad for us to go with my cousins.

He introduces Janie to many new things such as fishing.

(John gets up from behind the desk and perches on the front of it, facing the audience)I miss those days, writing to you telling you how much I miss you. Holding your hand, picnicking in Richmond park, 3am trips to Sainsbury 's because I 'd forgotten to get anything for dinner even though I promised that I would. I remember you looking at flats to rent in zone 1 when we both knew we would never be able to afford it. (he pauses)I 'm sorry I made you move to the suburbs.

“Shortly after my sisters began to read the books, they grew restless and lost interest in darning socks and baking bread, and all of them eventually went to work as summer waitresses in the Sea Food Restaurant.” (MacLeod,2000,pg.5) The knowledge of the outside world leads the girls to a better life “None married a fisherman.” (MacLeod,2000,pg.8) The books helped the daughters break the chain that they were stuck in, the chain ‘of the sea’. “And then there came into my heart a very great love for my father and I thought it was very much braver to spend a life doing what you really do not want rather than selfishly following forever your own dreams and inclinations.”. This passage is where the son realizes that his father, similar to the girls was not ‘of the sea’, and wanted to escape too. “I would remain with him as long as he lived and we would fish the sea together. And he made no protest but only smiled through the cigarette smoke that wreathed his bed and replied, "I hope you will remember what you've said."

After a week of helping the citizens of Nassau bury their dead and haul debris to several areas designated for that purpose, Thomas and his crew were physically exhausted and ready for some downtime. Thanks mainly to he and his men, the local tavern was ready to open its doors, and he and his crew were some of the first in line. Besides being tired from the physical exertion, and due to the cause of their labor, they had barely eaten the first three days there; burying dead was never easy for any involved, however, everyone was thankful that it now seemed as if the hardest part was behind them. To celebrate and raise the moral of the residents of Nassau, the mayor had organized a barbeque banquet. A fat pig had been roasting in a back of hot coals all day and the local women had prepared a buffet of available foodstuffs and deserts for them to eat; all in all, it promised to be a good night.
I pull my sandwich out of my Spiderman lunch box and look around at the circle of boys and girl around me. Taking a moment to let their loud, cheerful chattering wash over me, I think about the old me I’d left in Chicago. How surprised she’d be if she saw me now, hanging out with so many new friends, becoming an actor and loving every minute of it. She’d never have had the courage to start a new activity with a group of strangers; yet, here she is, only months later, doing just that. Although Chicago is one of the most violent cities in America, growing up there was the safest I’ve ever felt -- I was completely sheltered emotionally.
