    This piece of prose is definitely not an easy piece to interpret, because it leaves a lot of questions in the reader’s head. The most obvious question would be about the occurrences on the mountain. One night turned into twenty years without any logical explanation. Sure, the author states that Rip drank some alcohol and passed out, but that does not explain the length of time that passed by. The case for this story is also hindered by the fact that the place where he drank at basically disappeared. Regardless of the unanswered questions, there are still interpretations that can be seen upon further examination of the story. Rip was a lazy man who did not really care for his family, or really anything in life. He spent days doing absolutely…

    Unanswered Questions & Metaphysics One of the hardest things for me, and one of the most frustrating things about this course, are the questions that are asked, but have no true answer. There are many questions in the world that have many or no answers, which you can sit and discuss for hours, days, weeks, and still never reach a definite answer. It may be frustrating, but that’s what keeps life interesting, especially for someone like me, who is extremely curious by nature. In this essay, I…

This means that how an actor voices a line or a scene can make an incredible difference. It could mean the difference of the audience hating or loving a character, or a death having meaning or not.

    Before reading the essay, Which Came First, by Francine Prose, I had assumed the question “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Was a meaningless conundrum, but now I see there is a deeper meaning to gain from it. I gained a deeper understanding by Francine explaining most people do not remember where they first heard the conundrum, a scientific explanation and that the question it self was not what was truly important. I started to gain a deeper understanding when Francine said most…

    / Dost thou know who made thee?” (1-2). The child is asking the lamb how it was made and where it comes from. At first glance, the child’s question appears to be rather simple. However, the child is asking a rather profound question, as if goes beyond the existence of the lamb. It is a question that humans ask themselves often: how they came into being. The Christian faith is greatly emphasized by how the poem ends. The child blesses the lamb, “Little Lamb God bless thee” (19). The poem is…

    bother, and even in high school, but the game was just a bunch of players in padding running after another player who had the ball. All sports are like that to me. I'm not athletic at all but I did try almost every sport, I just couldn’t get over the running back and forth part. You're probably thinking why didn’t I just ask my dad? Well, my dad is not a patience person, especially after him thinking I understood the game for so long. After my frustration took over, I finally decided to ask my…

Do you have to be a good musician, should it come before or after the sermon, is dancing okay, should we have lights, what music is okay, and many other questions. These are all basic questions, but are they the right ones? These are basic questions that are so specific that the real questions that should be asked are not even addressed. In fact, the church has been built in such a way that whatever is being done must be replicated and…
