Sacred Event and Favorite movies

A sacred event for my family would be Christmas. We all get together on Christmas eve to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus. Some years we also go to church on midnight for mass. We also give presents to each other and have dinner together.

My Favorite Movies:
Dear John
Seven pounds
The notebook

The video uses parts of Eliades chapters to show change. The river may symbolize life as its passing by and everything is changing. The leave is trying to make it home, which in this case it would be the season of spring.Eliades quote, “the past year vanishes to give place to another year, another era: that is, to the period when, through the reactualization of the Creation, the world in effect begins” (69) reminds me of what the film was about.

1. My name means concentrated to God. It originated as an American name.
2. One of my "sacred" centers is my family.

Song analysis

In the song “The River” Bruce Springsteen uses the symbols and archetypes of water, sexuality, and youth to express the theme that one decision can alter all. According to Bruce Springsteen, “then I got Mary pregnant and man that was all she wrote.” The river felt like home to him: “It is an obvious symbol of transformation for not only does it change from tadpole to frog but it is as much at home in the water as it is on land” (Stevens 338). Even though Bruce acted like he did not remember-- “well mister they vanished right into the air now I just act like I don't remember” --he was not saying the truth: “But I remember us riding in my brother's car.”

I had a good dream last night. It was a good dream because I dreamt that I was able to go shopping without a limit. I was shopping for purses at Macy’s having the time of my life. I was looking for my credit card in my purse but couldn’t remember where I had left it. Even though I could not find my credit card, I did have two extra credit cards, and I was able to purchase the items I wanted.
