I have also met people that were born in other countries and lived in the US all their life, and people who have recently immigrated.

It is even so localized that I can tell a person from Chicago from a person that lives in Indianapolis only a 200-mile differen...

    When I was little, I referred to them as Mommy Susie and Mommy Patti. Mommy Susie was the one who gave birth to me, the one who died in a car accident when I was eleven months old.

    TAKE THIS RIVER We move up a spine of earth That bridges the river and the canal. And where a dying white log, finger-like, Floating off the bank, claws at the slope, We stumble, and we laugh. We slow beneath the moon's eye; Near the shine of the river's blood face, The canal's veil of underbrush sweats frost, And this ancient watery scar retains The motionless tears of men with troubled spirits. For like the whole earth, This land of mine is soaked... Shadows together, We fall on the grass with...

  • Romeo And Juliet The Play Vs The Movie
    506 words
    When writing a comparison between a Shakespeare play and a play that has been made into a movie, one must remember something: Shakespeare never saw a movie, nor did he intend for his plays to become movies. You can tell this by the language of his plays. Since in a play, you cannot show the weather or the scenery, Shakespeare's language is very descriptive. In Romeo and Juliet, love is depicted in several ways. Both the movie (1996) and the play (1597) represent love in different ways and in di...

    It has always been a mystery to me how people can believe in love at first sight. How can you know you love someone just by seeing them for the first time?
