Writing Assignment 2:

Looking Back


Imagine that you are eighty six years old.  You have a clear mind and are living in relative comfort, but you have a strong sense that your time is very nearly through.  As you think back over your years, what are the things about which you feel most positive and sure?  What are your areas of question and regret?  Of all your thoughts and memories, what is it that enables best you to accept the end of life?


Your paper should be no fewer than three full pages long, double-spaced, typed.

The assignment is due in class on Wednesday, September 6
