interconnectedness or what is also referred to as the domino effect comes into play a lot in whirligig. this word means that whatever you do or say can connect people without physically being connected.
Brent is connected to the man from Miami and Alexandra and Steph just in different ways. They may not have ever met the each other but they are connected through the whirligig’s that Brent has put up at each corner of the united states. Brent was sent by Mrs. Zamora, Lea’s mother to make these whirligigs. Lea was a girl who ended up getting killed in a car crash. Brent was the one to hit her after getting bullied by some boys at a party and getting rejected by the girl he likes. Brent drove off angrily and drunk. he blanked out and hit Lea.
“We never know all the consequences of our acts. They reach into places we can’t see. And into the future, where no one can.” (P.38)
Now Lea’s mother wanted Brent to honor her by making whirligigs just like the ones Lea made as a child.
Brent made a few more connection with other people. he mad a physical connection with Emil, the german boy. He wanted to see the world like this man. wanted to be that man. Brent also connected with the cyclist. Brent also made a connection with a man or women who he has never or nor will meet. Brent bought a whirligig book and inside were sticky notes filled with helpful tools. the person who wrote these became connected to Brent.
“How does the influence of others impact our own lives?” This inquiry quote fits this topic perfectly. For Brent’s case it was the sticky notes in the book, Emil and the cyclist. For Alexandra and Steph they became connected to brent and Lea through the Whirligig. The Miami man was connected to Brent and Lea through his whirligig. they all became connected in a different way. they may not know each other but they are connected through this one project. these whirlgigs brought everyone together.
here is my sea devil and mountain journey building understanding.
Trip to earth
this is a snap that was taken my first day here on the planet earth. i mayly may was sent undercover to find out everything there is to know about the species on this blue and green planet. Earth if you don’t know is a planet in the milky way. earth has many different features that our home planet Eleria doesn’t have. They have many tree’s and a liquid called water. both the trees and water are how the creatures on this planet survive. that and fandoms. i was told that you would die on that planet if your fandom broke up. Fandom i soon learned meant something you were a fan towards. so we all are in fandoms since we have fans. another thing these creatures that are called humans cant survive without is these weird remotes. they are similar to our touch talks but run on something called Wifi. very weird technology this planet has. the humans were very different to one another. They looked different from one another. The boys all didn’t have the same body shape, face, hair or eyes. neither did the girls. they also had something called aging. Meaning you started out small and then grew until you reached a certain height. most of them were taller then 5ft. i know crazy right? some of these humans had these long cords attached to their ears. i tried asking what they were but it was like no one could hear me. they were probably suffering from toxicgloop. like i said, different planet. humans have surprised me on how much they have evolved. all the history books we have been reading explaining earth were way off. coming here i was scared at first. i didn’t want to be sent into the hunger games or thrown into a maze. i also made sure i stayed away from anyone with changing eye color’s and a girl named bella. this planet is amazing and i am glad i got the chance to visit it. well before we take over of course.
