Today was the day she hoped that this therapy malarkey would be out of her life for good, what she didn’t realise was that her last session was not going to end up as the walk in the park as she had hoped it would be. After the usual informal chitchat, Charles dived straight in with the gritty and much needed subject he needed Serena to tackle and that was something Serena was not feeling prepared for in the slightest.
“There is something we did not touch upon last week, I feel we need to” Charles sighed
“Okay, you almost sound terrified of asking me”
“Because it is a lot to ask of you” Charles trod carefully
“You’ve had me through the ringer already, what could be worse”
“The accident that happened the day of your miscarriage”
Serena’s face ran pale; she did not remember much about her brutal attack, she remembered her fear and her inability to control the situation. It was the first time someone had ever asked her about that day in a long time and the pain from her attack almost seemed to hit her like a flash of lightening.
“I… I do not recall much, the blood… I remember the blood, there was a lot of it, and my phone, my phone was badly smashed. I had to put my SIM in an old Nokia phone”

...in her eyes, not anymore. She only hoped that their friendship was a lot stronger and they could overcome the breakup, work together as colleagues, as friends.
“Sometimes, you have to let go of these things, it hurts. A lot like that time you made me let go of the balloon, it is painful but for the right reasons it was necessary. I think Ric understands, he didn 't want this for us, neither did I; but I know in here, in my heart it is the right thing to do”
“Well, it seems like it 's something you took a lot of thought over”
“No, I knew after walking out of here last week, subconsciously I must have always known; from the moment I knew I was pregnant, I just didn 't want to face it. It does not mean that we do not love each other or that we never did. Another time, another place, who knows? Just now it 's not the right time; it never was, as much as I wanted it.”

- The day had finally come. All of the hard work—some laziness, if I’m truly being honest, was finally going to be paid off. Tonight, I am officially going to become a high school graduate. The hands of the clock stood horizontally, for the countdown to commencement ticked away. I shuffle my feet to my bed where a black dress with cream-traced embroidery is already set out. I throw it over my head and poke my arms through the holes. Twirling in the mirror to make sure it looks just right, I gather my pile of differentiated tubes of makeup and scatter them onto the floor.... [tags: High school, Graduation, Twelfth grade, Time]

- One day the day will come when the day will not come We who have come from everywhere on this globe for a conversation on teaching comedia in the 21st century are testimonies of a fulfilled modern promise of traversing space and time with rapidity.

Then we will not have to cross space and time that serve as markers and measures of our experience because the space as expansion and the time as liner succession will cease to be....

- She's Come Undone: Female Voice One of the most interesting aspects of She's Come Undone is the fact that it is written by a man but is told from a female's point of view. Because of his gender, it is impossible that Lamb could have experienced many of the hardships that Dolores must deal with in his novel. However, Lamb writes with a certain understanding of Dolores and her pain. In She's Come Undone, Lamb addresses issues often avoided by male authors, including female friendships and abortion....

- Contemplating the End in Shaving and There Will Come Soft Rains What happens at the end. "Shaving" and "There Will Come Soft Rains" both address that issue, the first referring to the end of a man's life, the second to the end of humanity. Both ends come about through illness, whether that of a dying man or of a society that drives itself to suicide. The microcosm, the macrocosm- both show in their own way that man is mortal, that this too shall pass. The authors seem to have irreconcilable messages about humanity, which are in fact merely two faces of the same coin.... [tags: There Will Come Soft Rains Essays]

- What Dreams May Come When mortality is contemplated, issues of life, death, and the hereafter are usually the first of a myriad of topics to spontaneously arise as if they are from the dark depths of a person's soul. I believe that this is most eloquently stated by Hamlet: For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause. (III. i.) This passage served as inspiration for Richard Matheson, the author of the novel, What Dreams May Come.... [tags: What Dreams May Come]
