of the water and land back in with a splash, and then dart away. However, it wouldn't be much longer before I could reel the fish in close enough for my grandfather to dip in the metallic net and scoop the fish out. But when the fish did get close enough, it was massive and much larger than it looked from far away when it first jumped out of the glistening water. We pulled the fish in the boat and took a good amount of pictures before returning it to the water. My grandfather said “wow That thing was massive, I have never caught something that big.”
As we returned to the cabin with only a couple walleye and one bass my family were wondering if we caught anything big, and that's when I showed them all the pictures of the massive northern pike I had caught. They were all amazed and stunned my father told me “great job will,” and my jealous sister abby said “I could do better.” They were all amazed by what a ten year old with the help of his grandfather could catch. That was the very first time I had ever been fishing in…
The Unequipped Fisherman
Fishing on my families 14 foot aluminum boat at Lake Ponemah, I encountered an evasive pike who evaded capture because I failed to prepare the necessary fishing equipment. I was about 8 years old at the time, but I remember every detail; from the exact time my brother father and I entered the boat, to the tree on our lucky island. I recall pulling up near the superstitious island, and dropping anchor while I gathered my preferred equipment. During my first cast, I…
Heaney’s poems ‘Blackberry Picking’ and ‘Death of a Naturalist’ are both about insignificant events in his time. Both poems share similar themes: life, loss of childhood innocence and expectations and disappointment. The themes were conveyed through Heaney’s manipulation of the poem structure and his use of deliberately picked words and phrases. In this essay, I will be discussing about how his use of the poem structure and language expresses the themes of the two poems.
Firstly, the poem…
Zebulon Montgomery Pike, The hapless wander, as he is often called was one
of many one-time significant figures in early United States history who inexplicably faded from
prominence, with the passage of time, This along with his unfortunate connection with the
infamous traitor General James Wilkinson, have given Zebulon a well-deserved reputation for
pitiable-luck . A direct descendant of early colonial politician and settler John Pike, Zebulon
named after his father and American…
at the end of the rope. “Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade, and yet the menace of the years finds and shall find me unafraid”- Invictus like in the poem Invictus, I was no longer afraid. I overcame my new found fear of heights and easily walked back on the same tightrope and back to the earth. That was enough excitement for me in one day.
After my incident at the cave of the winds, our next trip of the vacation was the famous pikes peak. It is one of the…
it also led to the final destruction of native military and political power. Despite the apparent modernisation of the native Irish forces it is not hard to find articles and attitudes which view the war as a contest of the backward and militarily weak Irish, against the modern armies of Elizabeth I. The historian John Keegan noted that, the way a person fought was a cultural expression. Following on from this, the image of primitive and obsolete styles of warfare by the native Irish could…

Nest. The act of getting to the elevator to ride the 12 floors to the top is a secret mission of its own. The hostess will ask if you’ve made reservations and how many are in your party. She then speaks to her headset before she motions towards the elevator. The elevator is sleek, with a cool black interior, and the ride is surprisingly quick and before you know it you are at the top. The sign that greets you from the elevator transported me to Los Angeles. The Nest sign is nestled between two…
