Spooked American author, short story writer, essayist, poet, travel book writer, biographer, and columnist—WASHINGTON IRVING is best known for "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," in which the schoolmaster Ichabold Crane meets with a headless horseman. Irving was born in New York, April 3, 1783, and died of heart disease, at Sunnyside, his country-seat, on the banks of the Hudson, on November 28, 1859. Despite the decline in his popularity, our national memory is peopled with his creations—Ichabod Crane and Rip Van Winkle. In his own day he was regarded by some as a amateur; nevertheless, he wrote fiction and facts so gracefully that even his critics must admit that his work is rewarding to readers who come upon him more than two hundred years after his birth. So why has "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" been considered and used as children's story or fairy tale? First, this book is about a mystery of a killer. There are three bodies that turn up beheaded, and no one knows who the killer might be. A frail schoolteacher from the town of Sleepy Hollow named Ichabod Crane goes out on a journey to try and find out who the killer might be. He is surprised to find out that the killer is actually someone that returned from the dead to seek revenge upon the town. Ichabod Crane sets out to hunt down the headless horseman that has killed many people. The daughter of the host he is staying with, who he is determined to marry, accompanies him. He thinks he can beat the horseman by using his brain and they set out on a journey full of spook to try and beat the horseman at his own game. This book is really great for children because it is a mysterious tale that many children can...

The deception of love is shown throughout the essay "The Love Bloat" by Andrew Sullivan. Despite the knowledge and opinions convincing otherwise, our culture still thrives on love as its hope for happiness, with the persuasion that the only other option is loneliness. The burn that the lonely people feel on days such as Valentines, "if it knocks romance off its Hallmark pedestal" (609), is more rewarding than the lies that drive us in and leave us only to keep searching for something that is not real to "conquer us". The real conquer is not the chase and rewards but the relationship itself. The love that our culture teaches us to thrive for is nothing more than pure infatuation. Our culture often gives us the idea that this great infatuation is supposed to have rewards seen in movies such as the Wedding Planner. So many movies today place emphasis on the fairytale endings. Whether it is that the couple is separated worlds apart or somebody is getting in the way, the idea portrayed through such endings is that no matter what happens that everything always turns out perfectly. With our culture concentrating so much on the benefits and rewards of this untrue romance, we often forget to realize the downsides. We don't seem to remember the empty feeling it leaves with us when the romance is over, nor do we remember all the times we've been hurt before. We don't realize how diverting this romance can be to anyone and everyone. Sullivan said "It diverts us with phony adrenaline, teases us with jealousy, hooks us with sex […] It is so diverting that we tend to forget more pressing questions, like what to believe in or strive for" (609). All the people in our culture can see the things Sullivan expresses are extremely realistic and possible to happen. Unfortunately our culture is so caught up with the idea that they won't...

Marele Day's character Claudia Valentine in The Life And Crimes Of Harry Lavender is more than just a way of showing Sydney. Claudia is a stereotypical hard-boiled detective, who in many ways fits the conventions of the private investigator typecast. But in a role reversal, she is a new interpretation of the detective. Her character has a heart, which loves the old Sydney of the past. She contrasts with Harry Lavender, who loves Sydney, but as a city of the future. Clearly, Day changed from simply using Claudia as a way of showing Sydney, as Claudia became the central character. Initially, the setting of Sydney dominated the novel. There is no question that Sydney was always intended to be a major part of the book, as Day almost manages to personify the city as if it has a life of its own, constantly evolving and changing beyond control. Day's choice of settings reflects her intention to showcase not only the finer points of the city, but also the seedier locations, the underbelly of Sydney filled with crime and corruption. From the glass skyscrapers and monorail that snakes its way through the city, to the dubious video arcades and drug-smuggling container terminals, the novel exhibits the highs and lows of Sydney, just like it would any character in the story. There is even a hint of history in the novel, as Claudia describes how the early convict colonies have evolved into the present-day city (pages 69-70). Day has wittingly weaved the city of Sydney into the novel, creating a backbone that the story is formed around. To a degree, Claudia fits the stereotype of the hard-boiled detective. Day has created a cynical, hardened private investigator in the character of Claudia Valentine. Like a typical detective, Claudia has no qualms about physical violence or...

In the beginning of The Life and Loves of a She Devil, Ruth is everything but autonomous. She married her husband, a selfish idiot named Bobbo, purely out of convenience. He does not love Ruth at all, and never fails to remind her of her numerous shortcomings. He is constantly cheating on her with a wealthy, petite, blonde woman named Mary Fisher, and does not try to hide the affair at all. After one particularly heated argument, Ruth's tolerance simply cracks. Bobbo tells her he is leaving to go be with his obedient blonde, and, as a result, Ruth meticulously plans her revenge. Autonomy, in this book, can be defined as breaking free from those who control you; Ruth's marriage can be compared to a festering wound that is left untreated; it is nothing serious at first, but over time, things get worse and worse, until it is too late. Although unfortunate at first, Bobbo's desertion of Ruth was really a blessing in the long run. He thought that women were simply toys to be shoved around and taken advantage of; Ruth showed him that she did have a brain, a conscience, and common sense, and was not going to be tread on like a nasty old door-mat. I thought The Life and Loves of a She Devil was excellent until the last third of the book or so, when Ruth seduces the judge who is presiding over Bobbo's case. A truly autonomous woman would never have used sex to get what she wants. Although sex is wonderful and perfectly natural, there are other ways to get what you want. I do find it amusing that the Fay Weldon emphasized Ruth's ugliness and large stature so much, when it seemed so easy for her (Ruth) to turn men to putty in...

In a society shaped by its commercialism, many people will fall into the unfortunate trap of trying to exceed someone else's standards. The catalyst for this maddening condition exsists all around us: in car commercials, on bumper stickers ("He who dies witht he most toys wins!"), in stores peddling expensive passing fashions, and on billboards flaunting house of ridiculous size and cost. Children are conditioned to covet a brass ring that is impossible to attain, and will either spend a lifetime sacrificing personal happiness to conquer a status, or will simply give up rather than face a certain failure. No matter what amount of drive and desire one possess, it never fails for someone to have a stronger desire and will to acheive more in life. On the surface, those people seem to have it all, and in our admiration, we are often riddled with desperate jealousy. Edwin Arlington Robinson exemplified this condition masterfully in his poem "Richard Cory". The speaker of the poem is someone in a low working class, but he is speaking for everyone in his community who seem to be of equal financial stature. They toil away at work that is both dirty and grueling, and at the end of the day, there is very little to show for it. They are hungry - not only for food, but also for comfort. Robinson himself lived in poverty, and was almost certainly familiar with the feeling of envy that this character reveals in the poem. However, are the poor in fact at the bottom of the emotional heap? Perhaps a closer look into each line of texas will demonstrate that things are not always as they seem. The first stanza of the poem gives the reader a glimpse into what Richard Cory is all about, or at least how...

The Life and Works of Bertolt Brecht Bertolt Brecht was one of the chief innovators of modern theatrical techniques. He was both a poet and a playwright all in one. His epic theatrical creations developed drama as a forum for social and idealistic causes. Brecht's imagination, artistic genius, and social views distinguish his work and his life. Eugen Bertolt Brecht was born February 10, 1898 in Augsburg Germany, a town in Bavaria. His family was of middle class, which he came to resent, in favor of a Marxist proletarian society. In 1917 he attended Ludwig Maximillian University, in Munich, where he studied medicine. Towards the end of the First World War, Brecht served in a military hospital. During this time in 199918, he wrote his first piece of work Baal, however it was not published until a later time. In 1922 he wrote his first success, Drums in the Night. In 1923 Baal was finally produced. Until this time Brecht had lived in Bavaria. In 1924 he moved to Berlin, where he developed a strong antibourgeois attitude. Several people of his generation developed similar attitudes, as a result of the disappointing post World War I society in Germany. Among his friends, at this time, was a group of Dadaist, who aimed at destroying what they called the false standards and ideals of the bourgeois society. Brecht also became acquainted with a prominent theoretician named Karl Korsch, who taught him the elements of Marxism. During this time period from 1924 to 1933, Brecht worked briefly with the directors Max Reinhardt and Erwin Piscator. However he mainly worked with his own group of associates. In 1924 he wrote his first professional production Edward II. In 1927 he wrote A manual of Piety. In 1928, while working with the composer Kurt Weil, Bertolt...

Lord George Gordon Byron was as famous in his lifetime for his personality cult as for his poetry. He was the most colorful of the English 'Romantics' poets, whose poetry captured the imagination of Europe. Gordon described his work at one time as the "lava of the imagination", which implies that it was the uncontrolled outpouring of his mind. His theme was always that people be free to choose their own course in life. When Byron read his poetry, people listened. He became an early public figure because of his disrespectful, satiric poetry. Lord Byron's reputation as a great man has been confirmed by generations of the future. George Gordon, Lord Byron, born January 22, 1788, was the son of Captain John Byron and Catherine Gordon. He was born with a clubfoot (which he was sensitive about) and suffered from obesity as a child. Byron spent his childhood years in Aberdeen, Scotland, where he was educated until the age of ten. Gordon inherited the title Lord Byron and estates from his great-uncle in 1978, making him the sixth Lord Byron. In 1802, Byron met his half-sister Augusta Leigh, whom he was later suspected of having an affair. At age fifteen, he fell in love with his cousins, Mary Chaworth, whom he wrote the poem "To Emma," and Margaret Parker. In 1815, Byron married Anne Isabella Milbanke and also wrote the poem "She Walks in Beauty". It is somewhat of a love poem, expressing how beautiful the woman is that Lord Byron is looking at. The poem was about his cousin, whom he met at a party in "a black spangled dress". Byron describes a night with bright stars and compares this woman to that night. The poem visualizes light versus darkness. "She Walks in Beauty" uses a lot of alliteration, the repeating...

Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809 in Boston Massachusetts. His mother was an English actress named Elizabeth Arnold. His father, David Poe was an Irish actor. Poe's father deserted the family and his mother died when he was three years old. This was only the beginning of the tragedies that plagued Poe and his entire life. John Allan, a wealthy tobacco exporter and his wife Nancy adopted Edgar, and he took Allan as part of his name. Poe was educated in London in boarding schools. Later on he attended the University of Virginia. It was at this university that he wrote, "Tamerlane," his first serious poem. Edgar Allan Poe affected society with his poems, short stories and his death. Edgar Allan Poe affected society with his short stories. "Some years ago Edward Shanks justifies his writings of a book on Poe on the ground that Poe was "The man through whom was made America's first great contribution to the literature of the world." ." (Anderson 56)This shows that he gained respect from society. By gaining respect from society, Poe was able to become a very remembered writer. "Whether or not Poe invented the short story, it is certain that he originated the novel of detection." (Nelson 96)This shows that Poe created his own genre of literature. By creating his own genre, Poe was able to stand out more. By people's opinions and creating his own genre, Poe will have an impact forever on society. Another way Edgar Allan Poe affected society was with his poems. "His stories are imaginative and his poems are musical. In both genres he was impressively romantic. The effect of his work upon the imagination is vivid and haunting." (Quinn 12)This shows that his poems were very unique. By creating unique poems, Poe was able to relate...

Edith Wharton was born Edith Newbold Jones on January 24, 1862 in New York City. She was the youngest of three children. All though her birth was unexpected and unwanted, Edith was raised as if she was an only child. Her mother, Lucretia Stevens Rhinelander, was the granddaughter of an American Revolutionary patriot, and the daughter of a wealthy landowner. Her father had inherited his wealth from his parents. During the first few years of Ms. Wharton's life, her family and her spent their winters in New York and their summers in Rhode Island. Ms. Wharton didn't receive an education while she was growing up, but she was lucky enough to be able to use her father's library and was privately educated by tutors. She spent most of her earlier years reading rather then participating in any other activities that people her age did. When she was four years old, her parents took her on a trip to Europe. She got to visit places like Rome and Paris. It was there when Ms. Wharton started becoming interested in things such as Greek and Roman Gods. She eventually learned to read, write, and speak in German, French, and Italian because of the tutoring and touring of such places. After six years, when Ms. Wharton was ten, she and her family returned from Europe back to the United States. Edith didn't know what to make of it. She had mixed emotions about New York City. She missed such things in Europe such as the glamour and fashion, and was overwhelmed by he insanity of New York City. She was however delighted to see her family and friends both in New York City and Rhode Island. In the United States Ms. Wharton continued to study Modern Languages. Edith's family and most of her friends' families were not...

John Keats was a romantic poet and this paper will focus on the poem "To Sleep". The poem "To Sleep" examines the similarities between sleep and death. John Keats had a short life but it was very full. He went through so much and that was usually the basis of his poems. In this paper, "To Sleep," will be analyzed and will also discuss some of the criticisms. John Keats basically compares sleep and death and how similar they actually are. This paper will discuss the poems theme, tone, structure, literal and figurative meanings. Even though the life of John Keats was short, there is a lot to say about the 27 years that the romantic poet lived. John Keats was a very important romantic poet that was born on October 31, 1795. He was born to Frances Jennings and Thomas Keats and was the oldest of four children. All the children were extremely close. His father, Thomas was a stable manager who died in 1804 in a riding accident. Keats's mother remarried soon after Thomas died, but the marriage did not last. His mother died of tuberculosis in 1810. In school Keats was not an excellent student, but he loved to read. He fell in love with English Literature and that was probably why he began writing poetry and letters at all. He was most known for his fighting. In 1811 Keats went to work under a surgeon. While he studied for his license he finished his first poem "Lines in Imitation of Spenser" in 1814. In 1815 Keats moved back to London to finish studying surgery at Guy's hospital. Before he became a full time poet Keats worked as a junior house surgeon. While in London John Keats met Leigh Hunt and Leigh introduced him to some romantic poets. Keats published...

Pygmalion is a Cinderella like play, which adds the proposition of class distinction and social barriers. Theses subjects are introduced through the character of Mr. Doolittle. Mr. Doolittle is a lower class dustman, who has a daughter named Eliza Doolittle. Eliza plays a significant role in this play by mocking the distinction of class. Mr. Dolittle displays his morals and ethics by mocking Victorian philosophy and having impracticable views of the world, he does this comically by adding an extra interest in the play. Through the play these artificial ideas are implicated as real, that lower class people are happy with their financial situation, and satisfied having such a laborious job. Mr. Doolittle is portrayed as a comical character that only appears when there is an anticlimax. He adds more life to the play by his unrealistic views on the world, that he wouldn't be any happy living in another class besides lower class. Mr. Doolittle adds another amusing affect by opposing the upper class educated philosophy of Mr. Higgins. Henry Higgins takes Eliza in to his home and mocks the distinction of class. Henry does this by passing Eliza off as an upper class woman. Doolittle captures the audience's attention by his speeches and reactions when he enters Henry Higgins' home. In the two acts that Doolittle was in he took centre stage. The main focus that Doolittle exaggerates on is the view of society. He allows the audience to believe in his artificial reality, which doesn't actually coincide with the reality of life at this time period when people lower class people were subject to such harsh conditions. Doolittle's job, a dustman doesn't correspond to his advanced knowledge and logic for a lower class person who probably hasn't gone to school. Doolittle gives a broad outlook on the way...

Dunbar's Poetry Paul Laurence Dunbar was born on June 27, 1872 to former slaves, who had relocated Dayton Ohio. Dunbar was the editor of his high school news paper which was exceptional, considering he was the only African-American enrolled at the school. He went on to become the first African-American poet of national recognition. Throughout his life he maintained an active roll in politics and along with, Booker T. Washington and W.E.B Dubois raised money for the black college, Tuskegee Institute. Dunbar wrote ab out the black experience in his poetry, reflecting his life as an African- American during the late 1800's and early 1900's. He was the first black author to use black dialect in his work. Being the son of former slaves did not stop Dunbar from becoming the editor of his high school paper, or achieving renown as a gifted poet. Charles Thatcher who was a lawyer in Toledo became one of Dunbar's earliest supports. It's clear that Dunbar was Destin for great things at an early age. The son of ex-slaves stepped in and out of dialect for affect, never losing his distinctly black voice. He published and African-American newsletter in Dayton, called tattler with the help of the Wright brothers. Dunbar published in such mainstream journals as century, Lipincotts monthly the Atlantic monthly and the Saturday Evening Post.

The intrinsic qualities that define the person of Zora Neale Hurston include feminist, sentimentalist, passionate, deep-rooted and a maverick. Born a black female during a time when a person's place in society was determined by the color of their skin and women were fighting for their rights. Proud of her race and gender; Hurston was indifferent to the norms of society. She is noted as one of the first black American female writers of her time and there are claims she is the pioneer of feminism. Her literary works include articles, novels, folklore, dramas, and an autobiography. The majority of her fiction is written in southern black dialect, which transports the reader back into time. Zora Neal Hurston's life is prominent through the semblance of characters and events, which she depicts throughout her novel Their Eyes Were Watching God. The protagonist in the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God is Janie Crawford, a beautiful light-skinned black woman "who is unable to discover her true self until she begins to take charge of her life" (Galenet). Janie, at the tender age of seventeen, marries a middle-aged man, Logan Killicks. She marries Logan for the sake of her grandmother, who lived a painful life as a slave; raped and beaten by white men, she is determined to protect Janie from the trials and tribulations she had to endure. Janie dreams the marriage will lead to love, but the dream is shattered, until one day when Joe Starks, a handsome young man full of ambitions, enters into Janie's life. He lures her with promises of wealth and happiness; his blandishments work and Janie leaves Logan cold. The promise of wealth is kept but the promise of happiness is broken; for twenty years, Joe stifles her individuality and growth as a person. She is trapped...

How did witchcraft really come about in the little town of Salem? To me, I think that witchcraft was from a brain of a tight-skinned, eager-eyed intellectual man with the name, Reverend John Hale. Hale is a character, which fascinates me in many ways. In The Crucible, I could see many conflicts arising among the characters but that Hale had faced important decisions affecting his life as well as alongside characters Abigail, Proctor, and Elizabeth. The main reason why I chose and am auditioning for this role in the play is because whether right or wrong, Hale went and followed with what he thought was the right decision within his heart and not depending on others for conclusions. Through the play, Hale changes from being sure about his own beliefs of witchcraft in Salem and feeling that he is carrying out the desires and works of God himself but as the play moves on, Hale sees all these honest and good people being sentenced and executed. Soon Hale considers whether to do what he is sent to do, listen to Danforth, or listen to his own conscience and accuse the proceedings as unjust and wrong. In the end, Hale decides to help out all the people wrongly accused by encouraging them to confess and save themselves from false proceedings for Hale discovers, earthly life is a greater gift than eternal life in heaven, which is forbidden and against the law account in the religion of Salem. Although Hale has changed, his response to this dilemma is not disobedience but surrender for he could not prevent what had happened although he had tried. I think, in the play Hale symbolises survival, which to him is the utmost good even if it means accommodating oneself to justice. This is something that the truly heroic characters can never...

Hate me, do you? Well my pretties, I have a little surprise for you. Read on if your prepared to read a tale of how one lion cub lived a long life in the shadow of his older brother who had it all – a wife, a son, many admirers – EVERYTHING I WANTED. Then to see his brother become King as he struggled to live off antelope bones and be clothed in rags – and, what was to become of him? He fell in with the wrong crowd. Sorry dearest brother (may your gold encrusted soul lay in peace), but its about time people knew the truth, the WHOLE truth. The Sun rose over the enchanting African plains, showcasing the beauty unforeseen by the human race – the animal kingdom. Trees and plants open up to the call of the Sun, and animals wake to the warm breeze blown throughout the midsummer air. It was that kind of weather, which made you crave a cool, mud-ridden waterhole, and the kind of weather to wake me up. I flicked open my eyes, to be spellbound by the Sun, staring at me. I separated my dry lips to open my jaw, followed by a great, big yawn. Now I felt rather woken, I decided to arch my back; "Purrr" ah, what a relief. Each of the bones in my back felt warmed up, now time for my daily yoga routine… WHAT?!? You think I'm in such good shape naturally? Naïve, I say! After rolling around on the wheat scratching my back for about twenty minutes or so, I was awoken from my daydream, which consisted of me rescuing a scantily clad Cinderella from a burning tower, mmm. My I was angry – you could've boiled a pot of stew on the heat coming out...

The implied reader of this story would be someone willing to believe in a world such as Narnia, where the personification of animals is real and where children can become Kings and Queens. Not only would the reader have to believe in the imaginative reality of Narnia but also in the characters portrayed in the novel, for example Mr. Tumnus, "[f]rom the waist upward he was like a man, but his legs were shaped like a goat's (the hair on them was glossy black) and instead of feet he had goat's hoofs" (8). In our world a character such as this seems impossible, however in the world of Narnia these characters come to life. My brother and I fit the description of the implied reader perfectly. We were completely willing to become trapped in the world of Narnia and to become one of the characters, this novel was our chance to live the life of someone completely opposite to ourselves. As a child I was able to thoroughly enjoy the book because the main characters in the novel were of similar age to me which made it easy for me to relate to them. After re-reading, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and discussing it with a few of my peers who also enjoyed the book as a child, I encountered a certain depth about the book that I had never noticed before. As an adult I discovered certain parallels to the bible and to Christ. Aslan, the great lion, is an obvious symbol of Christ. He risked his life in order to save Edmund from his own gluttony and from the White Witch. This parallels the way Christ was crucified in order to save mankind. There is also the parallel of temptation in the novel similar to that in...

Carlos Quiñonez EN 101 section 1 Date. 11/13/03 The Living Conditions Are Rotten Because of paying such an expensive fee in the dorms of the Ave Maria College, I expect to live in clean and decent conditions. But this has not been the case at all in Ave Maria College. The living conditions are rotten because the beds are extremely hard; the noise at sunrise is disturbing; the toilets are extremely dirty; the couches smell horribly disgusting; there is no control of pests; and the food from the cafeteria is not healthy. These are just a few of the many things that the dorms of Ave Maria have to offer. The bed that I have in the dorms is the worst bed that I have ever had to sleep on. In the middle of the bed, there is a spring that pops out and bothers me whenever I lay on the bed. Because of the spring, I have to sleep on the side of the bed against the wall so I don't fall off the bed. The bed that I have is very hard to get used to. When I wake up in the morning, I can barely move my neck because the bed is so stiff. Sleeping in the beds of the dorms has been a nightmare for me; I have had a better sleep on a wooden floor than in this bed. I asked the room assistant for another bed, but he told me that all the beds were the same. They are very hard and smell horribly. At 6:00 in the morning while sleeping, I hear a noise from far away, which keeps getting louder and louder while I am resting. When the noise is too loud, I have to wake up. It is the lawn mower at 6:00 in the morning cutting...

This essay is about a small English patrol of seven men in the Malayan jungle who all have very different personalities and who capture a Japanese prisoner; these two facts cause many conflicts between the characters.(The play is set mainly in a small run down hut which is a few hundred from a tin mine which is now deserted. There is a door with winders on either side looking out on the veranda and the jungle beyond. The hut has been stripped of everything of only value by the mine-workers before they fled-all that remains is a table and two chairs and also a form to the right of the room.) Mitchem is the sergeant in charge of the patrol. He has a natural authority which is first shown when he discovers Maceish and Bamforth out to fight and restores order quickly. He controls Banforth by using the sort of sarcasm Bamforth uses on everybody else. I've met your kind before. I've seen men who'd make breakfast out of muck like you go in the nick and do their time and come back so butter wouldn't melt in their crutch. Don't try and come the hand stuff with me son. It doesn't work. I'm up to all them tricks myself. OK', Mitchems job is to make sure all his men do their duty and to keep them calm and motivated. When the men here the Japanese voices on the radio he attacks their fear by saying "You've heard one slimy Nippo on the set and now you're having second thoughts then giving them brisk specific instructions. Mitchem doesn't like what he has to do 'It stinks to me to do for him. Come to that, the whole lot stinks to me! Johnstone is the one character we don't give any...

All was black, there was not a person in sight. All the excitement from the party had gone, turned to a long boring walk to that place we call home. The road looked a lot more narrower. The walls in the alleys looked like they were closing in on me. Must be the liquor kicking in. with all this alcohol inside me I'm not even sure I'm going to make it home. The moon was big and bright. It looked rather big for something so far into space. Streetlights flickering like a burning out candle. The wind singing. It was like something from a horror movie. Somehow, I didn't feel like I was alone but yet the busy road was so quite that not a single car went past. Time had never gone so slow. The trees looked like they had a life of their own, dark brown trunks with dark green leaves. Some of them seemed like they had their own eyes, watching my every movement. My eyes caught a light. It was a car. A black car with blacked out windows. It pulled over slowly and someone was opening the windows. It was so dark I couldn't see the mans face very well. He had dark brown eyes and black hair. He was wearing a white coat smoking a cigarette. He offered me a ride to were ever I was going but I didn't trust him. His voice was so calm and quiet it tickled my ears. I told him I was okay and that I was close to my house yet I was so far. I had a feeling I hould have taken that ride. My heart was telling me no but my brain was telling me yes. It didn't seem right because he was a total stranger to me. So the walk carried...
