The best-laid plans schemes

Now with more somnambulism! Ideas rattling around in my skull… Hypothesis: Intestinal flora imbalances cultured with refined foods are a basis for systemic failure in the human body (there is already plenty of flim-flam out on the ‘net to this effect) Project: Intricate wood-burning project involving ouroboros design, ceramic inlay, complicated system of gears which […]
