Reflections = APFirst Person Narrative Writing Exercise #1 As I was coming home from work last night, I thought about where life is taking me. Back in college I had not put too much thought into the matter, because it always seemed like there was something to look forward to. Then I met Marla, my future and now present wife. Standing in that bar, marriage was the last thing on my mind. I was more worried about getting her to notice me than planning nuptials. Luckily, she decided that I was worthy of her presence: being a 6ft tall redhead with deep eyes, I don't know what she saw in me. I still don't, but I've never been one to complain about good luck.

Trust me when I tell youTrust me when I tell you...That despite all my trouble,I wouldn't change the earth,For all the pain I endure,This is what it's worth;Embracing your silky love,Enjoying all the pastimes,Of computers and the bed,Or a Dark Side with lime,Working towards these goals,Of your personal ambitions,Or creating brand new works,With intimate dispositions.No, I wouldn't change it all,With the way things are going,I am happy with that little light,That the end of the tunnel is showing.~~~~~By: Patrick P. 01-20-2004 1:05 AM
