Document Reading Response: Thoreau Document 2006-02-03 2007-10-05 2005-09-13
  Thoreau's success as a teacher comes both from satirizing effectively the kinds of values that lead people away from finding the divine in the everyday and in his presentation of the quality of life thereby lost. He has created a spiritual text that we can meditate on to help us stay focused on living deeply.

  Hannah walked miles through the desert, and she speaks of the conscience that prevents her from using cars. In my memory of this article I imagined her resting in meager shade during the day, and then walking in the crisp, stellar, desolate silence of the desert night. Below is the carbusters version of what Lousia Aronow wrote, so that the rest of us with the carfree conscience can learn from Hannah's example.

Document Written on being asked to help a group study for Linguistics 420 Document 2005-06-30 2008-03-05 2005-06-30
  This summer I'm taking a linguistics class taught by the chair of the department. It is not an easy class. I'm learning a lot. A group asked me to help them out this weekend. On first being asked, I thought I couldn't help, it is just a matter of taking the time to read... A while later, since I'm planning to be a teacher of some kind, I said I'd meet with them. After thinking about it rather too much last night, I decided on what I've written about below.

I will consider my desires and in what areas I may need to change, develop, or compromise in order to appeal to this woman.

  A book by Jeremy Rifkin published in September 2004. The importance of 'The European Dream' to the carfree movement is that it describes the broader effects and background of a person-centric environment. In 'The European Dream', carfreeness can be understood in relation to a larger vision encompassing individual, social, economic, and political development.
