Plato once wrote that some people are born pregnant in body and some pregnant in soul. I must have been born with a tendency for endless thoughts and a penchant for the relishing and the evocative.

Instead of romantic interludes that sometimes culminate in procreation, my existence has been adorned with savory moments that inspired the creation of this site—or my firstborn.

Like a wishful parent, I shall nurture it with the hope that it will blossom over the passage of time, yet remain forever close to my heart.
