    “Windsurfing” “Windsurfing” by David Solway is simply a poem about a windsurfer’s experience from beginning to end. Surprisingly, the speaker is not the windsurfer, but is the author himself. It is a very positive poem, which makes it so enjoyable and easy to read. Solway uses many images in the poem. The images he uses connect to almost all of our senses, making the readers feel like they are experiencing the ride for themselves.

    After Christopher Columbus died in 1506, the story of his life has gone through several changes. Native Americans have criticized Columbus severely on his behavior and attitude towards Native American tribes. On the other hand, there was a time when Christopher Columbus was considered for sainthood. So what was Columbus? Was he a hero or a villain? It may come as a surprise that I believe Columbus was neither of the two. Like a normal person, he had some qualities that were good and some that were negative. He was not a saint and he was not evil. He was a highly skilled sailor, while being an

    "My Discovery" "Either you love it or you hate it", Joel proclaimed again, for the umpteenth time.  His reddish face almost glowed against the gray sky.  The combination of giddy grin, round cheeks and tousled hair yielded a face far too boyish for a man in his mid-fifties. But the always-present twinkle in Joel's eye was ever so slightly diminished today, and I knew why: he feared that his intuition might be mistaken and that I might not, after all care to partake in today's activity.  His concern was compounded by the weather; which was far from ideal for my first sail.  Why wa
