Pages & leaves

No, not that kind of a leaf

A page is one side of a piece of paper in a book.
A leaf is a piece of paper in a book. It has 2 sides; that’s 2 pages. There’s an old, old saying: to “turn over a new leaf.” It means you’re putting your bad old past behind you and starting fresh with a better attitude. It’s like your life is a book.

I turned over a new leaf a few years ago. To be honest, I turned over a new leaf a bunch of times. This last leaf I hope I got right.
