Blog 1.5 -- Where are You Going? (Description)

Receding mountains in sunset, Wadi Rum, Jordan.


       As we go along in the class, you will have to make decisions about ethical issues.  To do so, you must, as Aristotle says, “know thyself.”  Just like in Blog 1.4, here you should tell the other half of the story.  If you know where your Garden is, you know how to motivate yourself; likewise, if you know what lies outside that Garden (the desert), you know exactly what you do not want.  Knowing where you are and where you are going makes for an empowered existence.  

Therefore, for this blog, write a description of your worst possible moment.  It does not have to be real, and it is not a Narrative (you are not telling a story).  You are trying to convey an idea/feeling — using adjectives and adverbs — to make the reader feel your experience.
