Erin Wiley English 102 March 12, 2008 Dr. Renee Love Discovery’s in Life A discovery can be a dream that is finally being realized, or a revelation that creates a new beginning. In the short story “Shiloh,” Norma Jean and Leroy’s marriage falls apart during the years Leroy is on the road. Norma Jean realizes that she and Leroy are not the same couple as they used to be. Norma Jean wants to start over with her life and leave Leroy behind. In the movie The Notebook , Allie and Noah are also a young couple discovering what love truly is. Although Allie and Noah never fell out of love, they were separated shortly after their first summer together. While love is a popular symbol of a revelation, my discovery was more about hard work and determination. I had a revelation when I came to Lander. I knew what I wanted to major in before I applied to college. Shortly, after being at Lander I could tell how hard I was going to have to work to make my dreams a reality. In the short story “Shiloh,” Leroy was injured in a trucking accident that required him to be at home a lot with his wife Norma Jean. Due to his accident, Leroy could not do normal daily activities, so Norma Jean took over the manly tasks. Norma Jean began to lift weights, take night classes and worked at the local drugstore during the day. Leroy however, lowered his masculinity standards by taking up knitting. Since Leroy is at home all of the time now Norma Jean realizes as time passes that she and Leroy are not the same people that they used to be. They were unfortunately stuck together in high school when Norma Jean became pregnant.
