The sun peeked over the Black Shadow Mountains to the east and illuminated the broad grassy Tamorian plains.
Riasean stifled a yawn. Morning held no appeal, heralding another day of scraping by. Of course, now things were a bit different. He accompanied a sorceress – or something of the sort – initially out of curiosity than anything else, and now a necessity. Or so he was told. His memory of what happened at and after the Inn was strangely dim. But now he was “tied” to Larah, whatever that meant, but since they had at least another day to ride together, he might as well ask.
“Can you explain how we are tied together? I don’t feel any different than I was before we arrived in Malodier.”

- When your life is lacking direction, it is frustrating. I remember talking to a friend back when I was in college, and she literally did not know what she wanted to do with her day, never mind her life. For her, she knew what she liked to do and what she was passionate about, but she couldn 't make up her mind on what she really wanted to do, so it became overwhelming and she just gave up. That seems to be a common thread nowadays when we can pretty much take a chance on anything we want to do. And, it 's very frustrating to have all these different dreams but not be able to choose which direction to go.... [tags: Meaning of life, Question, Debut albums]

I believe the audience for this writing is more geared toward my age group (18-30) when referencing the young working professional in society. It takes on the language slightly of looking back asking what has happened to this generation.... [tags: Mobile phone, Smartphone, BlackBerry]

I Couldn 't Know What Type Of Network Group Are The Most Important Things Inside Of Any Organization
- I couldn’t agree more with your post about communication being one of the most important things inside of any organization. We all know that a team or group of people can get more accomplished then one doing everything by his or her self. The only issue becomes communication and the lack thereof. It seems as though from your post, that your supervisor is hard to communicate with because of personality. People with non-confrontable personalities and those who do not like conflict in my opinion may have a harder time reaching out to the team about how to better the organization....

- Lines 85-97 of Tillie Olsen's first published poem "I Want You Women Up North to Know" contain the climactic turning point of this poem, and the language and form reflect this change. Instead of being humble and disjointed victims who remain mostly anonymous, the workers are transformed into an angry and unified group of distinct individuals. This shift in mood is accomplished by three devices: imagery, grouping, and capitalization of proper names. The imagery in this passage helps turn the tone of the poem from victimization to anger....
