- Bansonyi - 1,021 words
Bansonyi Art can be used to study the progression of a civilization through time. Art is usually used to express ones beliefs religiously, politically, and sometimes as a source of communication, which is accomplished through imagery. Symbols in works of art can be related to nature and myths.1 From the beginning of Chinese history, art and philosophy worked hand-in-hand with the creation of a work of art. Chinese art was used as evidence of a persons behavior and attitude towards nature and other beings (e.g. the nicer the painting the better the person.)2 During the seventh and eighth centuries Chinese art was at its peak. China at this time was under the jurisdiction of the Tang Dynasty. ...

- Descriptive Essay Of Oppermans Pond - 445 words
Descriptive Essay Of Oppermans Pond An escape, a release, an excursion from normal day to day activities: Oppermans Pond. My childhood is as a novel with the pages filled of memories of this serene Pond and its surroundings. The Pond is no more than 3/10ths by 1/10th of a mile in dimensions. It is set back among luscious green and yellow pine and maple trees and surrounded by regularly mowed green grass. The mix of green shades are similar to a young child's drawing using 5 different bright green and yellow markers. I lived across the street from this pond for 17 years before leaving to live in Dallas last year. I spend many hours simply thinking on top of a rock protruding from the ground t ...

- Exceptional Butterfly - 574 words
Exceptional Butterfly April McNabb Townsend September 19, 2000 An Exceptional Butterfly The grass was covered with delicate, colorful flowers and the meadows were never-ending. Each natural object was carefully placed as if Mother Nature had a specific place in mind. The warming sun shined brightly on the beautiful green grass. The hills, with their perfectly rounded tops were very distant but still visible to the naked eye. The flowers of exotic colors, insects chirping to many different tunes, and the smell of fresh rain in the springtime filled the air. Observing the insects was enlightening and enjoyable, especially the butterflies. In the meadow, many grasshoppers chirped piercingly, bu ...

- History Of Baseball - 963 words
History Of Baseball History of Baseball Baseball seems always to have lived more in myth that in history. Children in England and the United States had been playing variants of the game for years such as rounders, one o' cat, and base. In 1845, some young men in Manhattan organized themselves into the Knickerbockers BaseBall Club and wrote down the rules of the game they were playing. Twenty years later dozens of baseball clubs in New York and Brooklyn, and their journalist brethren, had made what they called the "national pastime" more popular than cricket, and the metropolis had become the country's first baseball powerhouse. As baseball clubs were transformed into entertainment businesses ...

- How Can A Native Minority Hold On To Their Heritage When They Are Thrust Into A Majority White Society, Ignorant To Their Val - 1,090 words
How can a Native minority hold on to their heritage when they are thrust into a majority white society, ignorant to their values? The author of Green Grass Running Water, Thomas King, examines this question is his eye-opening novel. By the cleaver way he sculpts his novel and the unique plot lines, he seems to leave the answer to the readers interpretation. Consequently, I found it a struggle to come up with any concrete answer. Maybe because their isnt one, and if there is I am not the most qualified person to pass judgment. I have never had to compromise my culture, because I am part of the cultural mainstream. I am an English speaking, American born, white male with very loose ties to my ...

- Mike Crayton - 507 words
Mike Crayton Dr.Kissler College Writing Monday February 21 1998 As you are awakened by the shrill morning yelp of the local farmers rooster, you emerge from your hut in a small woodland village. The morning sun glistens slightly off the emerald green grass as the local villagers start about their work for the newly starting day. When you finally venture down the small wooden ladder that protrudes from your front porch, you take notice of the small brook that runs out toward the surrounding areas. Small children frolic around you gingerly like the wind blowing through the tall saw grass on a mid-western plain. All the while, the local merchants peddle their wares around to the local shoppers. ...

- My Darling Clementine The Effects Of Noir - 372 words
My Darling Clementine - The Effects of Noir My Darling Clementine to me didn't stick out as a particularly dark movie. I will agree that there were a lot of dark scenes in it but not enough to distract me toward the idea of this being a particularly dark film as a whole. However the dark noir lighting style that was used to bring the night scenes to life certainly added something to it. Usually when I think of film noir, I tend to think of movies like Batman. There the lighting reflects the moral and physical issues behind the motives of the characters. And to keep that feeling going threw out the movie, even the day scenes are dark and gloomy to a degree. To me, that's dark. That is where a ...

- There Are No Children Here - 977 words
There Are No Children Here Alex Kotlowitz was a freelance journalist. In 1985 a friend came to him and asked him to write a text for a photo essay he was doing on (children living in poverty) for a Chicago magazine. That is when he met the Rivers brothers, Lafeyette, age ten, and Pharoah age seven. He spent only a few hours with them interviewing for the photo essay. Lafeyette had an impact on Kotlowitz. When asked what he wanted to be, Lafeyette responded with If I grow up, I'd like to be a bus driver. Meaning, at ten years old, he wasn't sure if he'd make it to adulthood. In 1988 Kotlowitz suggested to the boys' mother, LaJoe, the idea of writing a book about Pharoah, Lafeyette and the oth ...

- Thomas Cole - 1,063 words
... ose description of this stage, "The Empire is asserted, although to a limited degree, over sea, land, and the animal kingdom" (qtd. in Parry156). In his second section, called "The Pastoral State," the area is the same, but the perspective of the painting has slightly changed. Unlike the first stage with its broken trees, this stage is tamed and ordered. There are beautiful green grass fields in the scene, which may show that men have tamed the area in order to suit themselves. This painting shows several people being busy in their daily lives and some even relaxing. For example, shepherds can be seen as well as thinkers, imperial soldiers, and women working on chores at the stream with ...

Thomas Cole: Life, Paintings, And Views Thomas Cole: Life, Paintings, and Views Landscape painting was an extremely important time during the middle of the nineteenth century.

His works helped to find goodness in American land and to help Americans take pride in their unique geological features created by god. Thomas Cole inspired many with his brilliant works by bringing satisfaction among the people who were trying to find the truth (realism) through the works of others. Thom ...

When It Rains It Pours As I sit here listening to it fall on my window sill I feel a shade of darkness come over me. I walk outside to feel it falling on me. As I life my face towards the heavens to feel it falling on me I have this dark feeling of dred. For me, rainy days and nights make me feel sad inside. I get depressed and want to stay in the house in bed. Whenever it rains I usually come downstairs and look out the window, only to see if my car is still in front of my door. As I stare at the sky, I think to myself, it's going to rain all day. But still, I thought, the sun could shine anyway, bringing with it the spring flowers that smell so lovely, the green grass, the blue sky, and th ...
