The first blog sheds light on many of the ideas that I believe John McPhee was trying to get across in the essay “The Search for Marvin Gardens”. I can appreciate the quotes the blogger used from Tuan. They were very specific to the point of this essay. Sometimes when I read Tuan, whether it be before or after the short story, I find it very hard to join together a quote and how it has a deeper meaning in the story. I feel that the blogger, and my other classmates, find this process easier. This makes me grateful for the featured blogs that appear each week because I can now tie the two pieces of work (Tuan and the story of the week) together. I think the blogger did a fantastic job with reflecting on the two.
