An author may use pathetic fallacy to represent characters' emotions or the actions in a scene. This helps set the tone and mood while adding depth to characterizations. For instance, an angry character gets caught in a thunderstorm. We usually associate thunderstorms with darkness and anger, which would reflect the mood of the character. Thus, as a reader, we may gain a deeper perspective on the character. Similarly, when a character feels sad, it begins to rain. Both of these examples show the characters' emotions through the weather.
Hi Gary – I live in Charlotte, North Carolina and when I bought them they told me at the store they just started carrying them after not stocking them for awhile. If you are local to the area – they are at the Northlake Mall store and they have several different styles. When I ordered them the first time – I actually found them online at and selected the pick up store option….so maybe if you’re not local that could help you locate a Lowes close to you that has them….do a search on Lowes site for Evertrue or Evertrue moulding and they should come up in the results. I hope that helps!!!
Apparently, Ophie, Madison’s mom, found this funny the first couple of times, but not so much the rest. We started by just making it misplaced completely. We called ourselves the, “Every day’s April Fool’s Day!” people. Ophie walked out to get the mail and had a strange feeling that something was wrong, and she was definitely right because she burst out laughing when she saw the frenzied tree face. Trust me, it looked way funnier than it sounds. The second time around, she went to go tell Madison’s brother, Joshua, to stop hanging on the basketball hoop and noticed our giggly faces. She went over to tree and shook her head, placing the face back as it was supposed to be. The next time didn’t go so well because Ophie came over to us and sternly let us know to stop, in a way that made it clear that the behavior was funny the first two times, but was no longer so. “Okay?” she asked. We nodded agreement.
