"The excellency of every art is its intensity, capable of making all disagreeable evaporate."- John Keats A true art is one which is centered on a timeline of events of the world. New art styles have appeared and vanished, with the beginning of the industrial revolution and have meanwhile reflected the gradual changes that have taken place in art in our society. The 19th century painters considered art to be a representation of images that reflects moral values, Christian sentiments, righteous conducts, virtuous behaviors and noble sacrifices. The history of modern art starts with impressionism in Paris - a movement against the rigid painting done inside academy. The usage of light and strong colors was paramount for the impressionist art movement. Different movements fauvism, expressionism, cubism, surrealism and many other paved the pathway of the artist and the modern artist belief in the freedom of expression. They brush their thoughts and ideas into strokes of their art. With the progress of the century this artistic freedom has become fundamental to progressive modernism.

Chapter one of three Long Ride to Falstaff The war had just ended; it no longer was the focus, the nucleus, the main setting looming over Blue's head. The Civil War was won, won by the opposite side he was on, and the circumference of the country had doubled overnight-there was one single cloud for the whole country now, one horizon you might say. He, Blue, stood tall in his grey uniform no longer symbolic for the South; his shadow seemed to have reached all the way to Falstaff, where his Aunt Mary Anne Blue lived, where he was headed, for no reason other than she was his last living relative, eighty-nine years old, from his father's side. Blue, was someone to think about, ponder on, take heed in, he looked solid as a rock, dominating all around him-as if incased in an atmosphere of mystery. No longer the protector of anyone; He was in his early twenties. He had few passions, and fewer lusts, save, he loved shooting, cleaning his guns, fighting and drinking and had lesser than few aspirations and hopes beyond this.
I thought you were going to the community, " a John said, his eyebrows Raised. "Yes, yes, I am on my way, " Moosawa stammered, looking surprised. "But isn't it in the other direction, " a John inquired." "Of course, I should have known that, " said Moosawa. A John tried to ease the key seekers apparent nervousness by laughing and saying, "I know why you are off course; you made the same mistake I have made many times in this part of the forest. In fact, I still must be careful or I will easily get lost around here." "I can be so stupid at times and I am so glad that I ran into you both again, " said Moosawa. "Who knows where I might have ended up?" "We all become lost at times, " a John replied with a slight smile. "All you have to do is join the main trail at the end of this road and after a few miles, turn left. Then you should be able to navigate the rest of the way." "Thank you so very much again, " said Moosawa, reaching in his bag and producing some honey rice cakes. "May I offer you these for your help?
The auspicious night finally arrived, accompanied by a brilliant moon playing in a deep, black sky that was busily spewing out its myriad diamonds. A silvery-white glow suffused the entire forest as we made our way to the meadow under this immense canopy of stars, and only the bubbling of a nearby brook along with muted sounds of animals in the forest could be heard. Eager to learn more about this fascinating inner work, I was anxious to begin, but a John insisted we discuss a few things first. To begin with, he suggested that we observe every full moon night by staying up all night - practicing our inner work and discussing our progress, as well as deciding on how we should proceed with our search for the key. He then asked permission to speak, a courtesy extended by teachers in the forest indicating that the teacher regarded himself to be no better or further advanced than other key seekers, merely more senior. He took a seat on a rock and began; "Seeking the key is not related to a religion, a faith, a belief, or a path.
I have for long been touched by the literary excellence of Black Boy of all Richard Wright's work which I have had a reading, teaching experience spanning almost thirty years. A period in which I have kept wondering as to what makes it such a wonderful representation of a writer and at the same time remain a lively, gripping, intriguing, and illuminating read almost throughout the pages. That this year is the Centennial of his birth which is being marked deservedly well with many literary events I thought that it could be the must needed catalyst to propel me into putting my thoughts, reflections and recollections of this ever-present Black Boy in print. A celebration of the life and works of Richard Wright is significant and justified for me in Sierra Leone as his works both Black Boy and Native Son are taught and studied at all levels of our educational system from secondary school level upwards and have left an indelible impression on all who have read them. I have taught Black Boy for almost ten years from the teacher training college Milton Margai, to librarians in training at Fourah Bay College and I and my students have agreed it is a n irreplaceable gem - his style being a model for all as much as his stoicism and his unswerving pursuit of self-improvement in spite of all the forces pitted against him.
"Oh! God... It's awful... something incredible. I never thought the JFK airport would be such a mess. It's in derelict. Where gone all its splendor and majesty?" Durga said to herself, and stopped in her track. The fall, which had completely wrapped the airport in its cold spell, blurred her sight. But she could still see heaps of debris, stones and rubble all over the airport as if an earthquake had devastated it. "Where's Krishna?" she murmured, looking around the airport with her hands clasped and face full of horror. The lounge was terribly empty and wore a look of fright. A band of security guards were clearing the wreckage. Durga now saw Krishna rising up from one of the heaps of debris lying in the middle of the runway. 'Durga' he moaned as he was running over to her with blood oozing all thro his body. 'Krishna', she screeched. Her voice trembled, and she felt as if someone was strangulating her and smothering her breath. She woke up with a bang and sat on the edge of the bed, 'A nerve shattering dream', she thought and dried the sweat on her forehead with the free end of her sari.
I can remember when I was growing up my father would always mention a "Church Key" and all his friends and family knew perfectly well what he was talking about. Today few of the current generation have any concept of what a "Church key" is. Now, we are talking about 1930 - 1960 as a time frame for this slang used to designate a common bottle opener. Many of the older generation can remember when all beer came in bottles and they did not have any sort of twist off caps but rather they were tight fitting caps which required a special type of tool in which to open them. This traditional bottle opener was nicknamed a "Church Key" and it was made out of metal with either a round or oval opening where you would grip the bottle cap with. You would then give a sharp yank upward and the cap would gracefully fall to the ground. It was the shape of these unique bottle tools which reminded many people of the handles for the old fashioned keys used on ornamental doors. Usually you could find keys similar to these used to open church doors.
