cocktail recipe: Love & Murder (Richard Godwin/The Spirits). Want to try this, especially hoping that it’s a good as they say since “on paper it doesn’t seem like it should work.” Also, I’m in the market for someone who wants to test cocktails on me.
photo essay: Japan’s Kei-tora ‘Mini Truck’ Gardening Contest (Spoon & Tamago) “because most homes in Japan don’t have gardens.” (From 2020 but timeless really.)

a short letter on the experience of loss (Nick Cave/The Red Hand Files). “We become witnesses to the thrilling emergency of the present …”
