Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? - Mary Oliver
Fifty. Fifty states. Fifty-fifty. Fifty Gates of Wisdom.
Well, with all due respect to the Kaballah and the good ole U.S.A., the best thing about the number 50? The age I started writing poetry.

A place for writers.

Butterfly! Ah, the beauty of compound words. Or, the beauty of a stick of butter that suddenly sprouts colorful wings, depending on the student's sense of humor.
A reader wrote to ask, "How does one know when to use into or in to?"
