Sometimes it’s really hard not to kill something, even though you try really really hard. That is actually my gardening motto. “Try Not To Kill It”. I am just about 50% successful. Maybe. My partner in crime was so awesome to give me not just one, but two Shampoo Ginger rhizomes. I immediately put them in dirt to get them going. For a good few month they did nothing though. They didn’t grow or die. I have been worried that I might have already killed them, so last weekend, after a little research, I decided to bring them inside and put them in a little water. Just a small portion is touching the water and the rest is being held up by marbles. I check on them at least three times a day, to see if they have changed at all. So far all seems okay. Please don’t die.

The job. The relationship between Earth and gamra.


They killed our president. “They” being indisputably of alien origin.

My Love Affair with Manhattan: Vignettes of a Life in the City
by Joanie Strulowitz
4.1 Stars (44 Reviews)
Genre: Travel | Essays & Correspondence

FREE for a limited time

The very concept of New York City conjures up a wealth of emotions in many people. For writer Joanie Strulowitz, it has always been a place of magic: an enticing playground, a cascade of art, a wonderland of fascinating characters, a youth serum to keep her feeling forever young.

Believing herself to be a New Yorker who just happened to be born in Iowa, Strulowitz felt the tantalizing call of Manhattan from the time she was four, and eventually made her home there. In this love song to the City, she pays adoring tribute to the essence of Manhattan from its intense pace and the pounding excitement in the air to the funky charm and even the glittering pavement that provides a stage on which it all unfolds.

The City is her laboratory, her art studio, and the extraordinary inspiration for this collection of captivating vignettes. In each short but sublime piece, Strulowitz evokes the luminous ambiance that has lured artists and adventure seekers to the island metropolis for generations: enthralling chance encounters, the slightly terrifying exhilaration of first subway rides, the soothing clink of silverware in a favorite sidewalk cafe, the urge to break into song when discovering a perfect little boutique.

Anyone who has lived in New York City, played tourist there, or just dreamed of paying a visit will find something to love in this transcendent appreciation of the jewel-encrusted celebration of life and art that is Manhattan.

And what could be more appropriate than a new marriage to another, wealthier, man?
