The title ("winged words") hails from The Odyssey, in which gods as well as humans "utter wing'ed words," hoping for a listener. The Greeks believed words were air-borne, that they took flight in a sense and sought a home, to become "un-winged," coming to rest in the ears of a willing listener.
That is my hope. Isn't it everyone's?
Other than this: I am a college junior beset by tuition and the trials of youth. Still, I am flourishing. I miss the country all the time. You may call me, "R."
