Intro Sample...


Another scene that shows the reinforcement of the moral or societal restrictions of a couple was when they “built” the “Walls of Jericho.” The “Walls of Jericho” was made out of a blanket separating the non-couple couple. This scene is very popular because Ellie and Peter were “forced” to sleep in the same little room. They were forced to be nice to each other. In that same room, they got to know each other and grew to actually like each other. And they had to change in the same room.

There are other little things that you’ll notice in the movie that reinforces the moral and societal restrictions of a couple, married or not. View More »

    Once upon a time, there was a prostitute called Maria. Wait a minute. 'Once upon a time' is how all the best children's stories begin and 'prostitute' is a word for adults. How can I start a book with this apparent contradiction? But since, at every moment of our lives, we all have one foot in a fairy tale and the other in the abyss, let's keep that beginning.

    A Geisha’s Struggle For Happiness “We human beings are only a part of something very much larger. When we walk along, we may crush a beetle or simply cause a change in the air so that a fly ends up where it might never have gone otherwise. And if we think of the same example but with ourselves in the role of the insect, and the larger universe in the role we’ve just played, it’s perfectly clear that we’re affected every day by forces over which we have no more control than the poor beetle has over our gigantic foot as it descends upon it. What are we to do? We must use whatever method

Tender is the night, and haply the Queen-Moon is on her throne, cluster’d around by all her starry Fays; but there is no light, save what from heaven is with the breezes blown through verdurous glooms and winding mossy ways.” This is a poem by John Keats called “Ode to a Nightingale” that inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald to come up with the title of this great novel; Tender Is the Night. Fitzgerald’s writing style impacted

    A SORROWFUL WOMAN The following short story is a study of the gradual disintegration of a human personality. In keeping with the "once upon a time" lead, the style is similar to a fairy tale except that "happily ever after" does not happen. The reader should consider the monotonously repetitive tasks taken over by the husband and later shared with the live in girl and compare these with the usual tasks of men in their jobs at the office or wherever. Then, consider how all of this relates to the final "legacy" of food, laundry, and sonnets. Once upon a time there was a wife and mother one

Before you raped me, I was vibrant in the worst kind of way. I moved like I was a dancer and danced like I was terrible in bed. But I was not a walking contradiction because to say that would be cliche and I was no cliche. It's true that most of the time I was being watched, like I was this little vibrant spec in the middle of a sea of black umbrellas and suits. A vibrant spec that was undenia
