  • The three posts connect well the sense of walking into nature is an experiential perspective; one should not remain connected to society and its implications, but enjoy their stroll and be one with nature. A lot of people agree that Tuan’s writing accurately describes what Thoreau is doing in his essay; however, I would like […]

  • Some advice for uploading the video to youtube or facebook: The process can take a really long time. I think you can drag and drop the edited video onto the camcorder and then you can use the camcorder as flashdrive to view the video.

  • Thanks for the comments about my post. I’m the author of the second post. Glad I could lend a new perspective for some of you.

  • The first post examines an unique idea that I had not originally noticed, the power of local gods. I disagreed with the statement that Victor was figuratively attached to his reservation; I don’t think Victor seems openly attached to his homeland, but he is stuck there without provisions to leave. In the second post, I […]

  • The first post makes a unique connection to a negative intimate experience. Cross feels guilt for the loss of a squad member which is different from the examples that Tuan gives us. The poster could have expanded more how the pebble that Martha gives Cross, explaining the significance of the pebble to Cross and what […]

  • Referring to post one, I don’t think that the mountain and helicopter are references to religion. The reason that they did not call for an ambulance is because they may lack proper communications as well as their difficult location; the base of a mountain isn’t ideal terrain for vehicles, which is why they must wait […]

  • Regarding the end of the second post, there is defined line of private life and public space as Tuan says, but the definition of the two concepts can be hazy. Lorraine was a part of Charlie’s private life, a part that Charlie would prefer to keep away from Marion. Lorraine’s intrusion upon Marion’s home could […]

  • Mr. Summers is the epitome of irony. When one thinks of summer, the usual thoughts are happiness and joy. Mr. Summers may seem like the “good guy” because the town pities him for an annoying wife and no heirs to his business, but the purity of Mr. Summers ends there. What is Mr. Summers’s role […]

  • Well there is only one minor reference to Poe at the end. Although the creators of The Simpsons are known for incorporating references to many of Poe’s works through their Tree-house of Horror (Halloween)specials.

  • Both posts are able to pinpoint a definition of mythical space and place and then find parallels within the story. Referring to post one, someone did enjoy the lottery and the event: Old Man Warner. However, you maybe arguing that no one, in their right mind, would want to participate in such an event. I’m […]

  • Both posts focus on the concept of spatial knowledge and spatial ability, but I’m having difficulty following their thoughts about spatial ability. I defined spatial knowledge as being able to recall directions without having to physically perform them, while spatial ability is the capability of navigating with natural means that we don’t have to…[Read more]
