A journey to town in a worn path by eudora welty

It is the woman wearing it who makes it the one thing or the other. I want to wander the wastelands of the Gobi desert and see a yak. In "A Worn Path", the character Phoenix has much in common with the mythical bird.

I want to be my own mountain and my own retreat.

How would I describe Phoenix Jackson's traits with support from

It breaks down a kind of inner structure we all have. And then myself, walking with the alignment that only comes after miles, the loose diagonal rhythm of arms swinging in synchronization with legs in a body that felt long and stretched out, almost as sinuous as a snake…when you give yourself to places, they give you yourself back; the more one comes to know them, the more one seeds them with the invisible crop of memories and associations that will be waiting for when you come back, while new places offer up new thoughts, new possibilities.

As with the migrant birds, so surely with us, there is a voice within, if only we would listen to it, that tells us so certainly when to go forth into the unknown. Place is vitally important to Welty.

So few of us are born into motion. Within the tale, the main character, Phoenix, must fight to overcome the barriers within the vividly described Southern landscape as she makes her trek to the nearest town.

And whether they came home again or not, they would belong neither here, nor there, for they would have lived on two continents and sampled two different ways of life.

It is the one way of freedom. But the whole world is out there, waiting, just waiting for me. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known. I have always wanted to travel across seas, like to Canada and stuff.

I want to do things— I want to walk the rain-soaked streets of London, and drink mint tea in Casablanca. However, another theme of the story is the ability of the human spirit to endure conflict and poor circumstances within nature and society.

And whether they came home again or not, they would belong neither here, nor there, for they would have lived on two continents and sampled two different ways of life.
