“I see her far away in the distance.” a youngun called.

The tall looming lady was a welcome sight after long weeks at sea.

“Hot meals will be a welcome relief after weeks of soapy soup,” the weary matron thought.

The pretty girl, in the gown, that was beginning to show its wear, wore a tight smile. ” I hope he likes me; there is nothing to go back to if I’m sent back.”

“Will there really be work for the likes of a scrawny boy with naught but two pence to rub together?”

The Lady distanced herself from the expectations.

Today at Friday Fictioneers Rochelle has up whipping up stories on the sea entering New York harbor.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

      1. My name is Marc Kennedy. I’m a double major in Philosophy and Film. In this class, I am most intsereted in learning about how brain functioning and capability plays a critical role in human behavior and moral judgements. My background in Phi is mostly in Western concepts and theories but Psychology, Neuroscience, Ethics, and Philosophy of Science are all very interesting to me and I hope to incorporate all these fields of thought into class discussions.

  1. This is lovely, that capturing of people’s expectations upon arriving. How brave so many were to journey across seas to find a new home in a foreign land.

  2. It makes me wonder what my ancestors were thinking when they first saw the “New World” in 1804. I’m sure they were filled with excitement and anxiety. This was a great piece. I enjoyed the various points of view.

    1. Hello, My name is Cliff Brown. I am a psychology major, with a minor in necsercionue. I enjoy conducting psychological research, especially in the fields of behavioral necsercionue and psychopharmacology. I have worked in two labs, one studying alcohol and energy drinks on cognitive behavioral tasks, and the other studying the long term effects of anitpsychotic medications. I hope to graduate in the spring, and then go into an experiemental psychology graduate program. My expectations for this class is to learn more about the ethical procedures, dilemas, and questions that arise when conducting necsercionue research.
