Edge of Night

Though you turn your gaze from me,

Your body craves my eyes' caress,

like a soul that yearns for light,

and yet, still clings to the edge of night.

Vocabulary Lesson 1

Chutzpah vs. Hubris

Dear Sage, Barack Obama's decision to gun for the Democratic Party's nomination is an example of "Chutzpah." But if he starts to make the "Quaylian" mistake by comparing himself to JFK, that's "Hubris."

" The Battle of Waterloo was won in the playing fields of Eaton"-- Wellington

Dear Sage and Sabine, You two love solving the Disney Princess JigZaw Puzzle together. You don't compete against each other but you guys try to solve it at the shortest time possible. and you have a lot of fun. Every time you put the final piece of the puzzle in place it's like it's always the first time you've done it. I love watching Sabine whoop it up when she sees the final piece fit.

When you guys make your valedictory speech after winning the Nobel Prize in Physics for formulating the Grand Unified Theory, The REAL HOLY GRAIL, that finally unifies the four fundamental forces of nature (Gravity, Electromagnetism, Weak Forces, Strong Forces), please be sure to mention that it all started with solving the Puzzle of the Four Disney Princesses (Cinderella, Aurora, Belle, Snow White).

BTW, here's an alpha numeric puzzle I made a few days ago. What's an alphanumeric puzzle?

An example is:

24 H in a D= 24 Hours in a Day
