a lil journey for my lover

Love story

Phantom Thread is a stunningly beautiful movie.  Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day Lewis), a dress maker, and Alma (Vicky Krieps), his model and muse, have a unique relationship from the start. They share creative work, develop an intense love and admiration, and make it work in very unconventional ways.  What they give and take links them like hook and eyelet, the details and great care becoming the fundamentals that fasten them together in their aesthetically pleasing world.

evolutionary ecstasy

David Strorm's book, How Animals Have Sex: A Guide to the Reproductive Habits of Creatures Great and Small, is so so fun to read!  You'll hoot and howl over his humorous and human take on the way 57 different creatures do it.  You'll be amazed by what you learn, about the octopus's detachable penis, the garden snail's love dart, and the eel's annual sex conference in the Sargasso Sea.  You'll never look at Mother Nature the same way again!

sweet soft beets

McCutcheon's pickled beets taste better than any candy anywhere and they create red blood cells which deliver oxygen to cells. A perfect food.
