    In twenty years 2003, you have accumulated a bushel of human experiences, challenges, wonders at Beauty. Share some with us Doctor, wouldjya.
    To qualify must exhibit three stanzas of normal length each. And no twenty dollar words. Cute invented words found accurate or convicting would also qualify. Challenge issued with a friendly smile.
