Racoon absolutely loved New England weather. He lived in Connecticut his whole life, and the best part of this area was the four seasons. He enjoyed the crisp, cool air of Winter with its billowy snow that melted when he reached out to catch it on his warm tongue. With his thick, soft fur coat even the biting winds in the coldest month of January didn't bother him! Slowly, the season turns into Spring. He liked to call it "The Season of Friendship" because that is when the daffodils (which symbolize friendship), showered with refreshing rain and the hot sun, come into full bloom with their range in colors from white to soft yellow to deep yellow to a yellow with deep orange centers. Reminding him of the bright yellow sun, that keeps getting hotter and brighter as the Summer nears. These are the days for relaxing and enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer. But the season that was his least favorite of all was Fall. This was the time when it was so hard to find shelter to sleep in at night, he sometimes had to sleep in the snow. Fall time was coming and once again the largest tree in Connecticut, the Pinchot Sycamore tree, was worrying about what would happen to her beautiful leaves when the earth started to cool down and die. The Sycamore was very sad because she had no one to talk to about her fears. It seemed like everytime someone came across her massive tree trunk, limbs that stretched so far West they thought for sure they reached California, leaves with its five sections appearing to be human like hands, and her sheer height nearly touching the clouds, they felt they were being dwarfed by a mean giant and ran away scared before having the chance to find out that she was

mice and Men. Both stories talk about the dreams that the main character(s) and what they do to achieve them. In Of Mice and Men we see all of the hardships and difficulties that main characters George and Lennie go through to reach their Personal Legend, or, what they always wanted to accomplish.
So far I believe the book is trying to show what it may take to reach your goals. I understand so far what is going on, and why Santiago has sold his sheep and left for Africa, because he was inspired…

“How well does the Anzac legend tell the story of individual Australian soldiers during World War One?”
Over the course of World War One stories of Anzac soldiers working together to beat the odd that were clearly not in their favour. These stories together created the Anzac legend. However the Anzac legend does not tell us of individual experiences of Anzac soldiers during the war. These letters, written reports, graphs and photos show that the individual Anzacs stories are not told well or even…

Leisure Time and Books
In post-apocalyptic literature there are two things that are significant- leisure time and books. Leisure time itself can make one go crazy, but with books, the post-apocalyptic world could change. I Am Legend, The Book of Eli, and “Speech Sounds” all have a similarity of the use of their leisure time with books, but with different motives on why the antagonist in these stories are against the books or knowledge itself.
Books are dangerous in dystopian…
"The Alchemist" written by Paulo Coelho has many themes that go on throughout the book. The most prominent theme in the book is one about dreams. Santiago starts the novel off with him wanting to pursue his reoccurring dream and finding the meaning of it. While on his path to finding the meaning of his dream, he meets a gypsy so she can tell him what it's about or at least give him some insight on it. One quote that stuck with me during their encounter was, "And when you want something, all the universe…

to the human beings today. Since technologies is still new the concepts of natural history are still new to some people. But, as human beings we like to make sense of things so we started to believe in god(s) and goddess(s) and made up myths and or legend telling us what happened before the human race began and how it began? In a way the majority of these myths led to one thing which was that some supernatural being created everything. If you dig a little deeper into prehistory, anf how the actual…
