In your CB write about a life-changing moment in your life. It does not have to be THE most significant moment. Rather, choose one of the top moments that you do not mind someone (possibly) reading. I say possibly because one never knows who might peek into your CB sometime. Tell what happened and why it resonates as important to you.
Where do you see irony in the pages?
Teacher and scholar Kenneth M Roemer has argued that In the Way to Rainy Mountain, “Momaday links the survival of his people to their ability to remember, preserve and pass on stories” (quoted in Holt 63).
