(Video link HERE.We recommend turning the music off while you watch this tiny miracle: a strawberry comes into being from flower to fruit.

Since strawberries are in season (and went through such an amazing process of becoming), we’re going to the farmer’s market to buy some REAL ones. We’ll savor them plain…

  2. Hi. We are offering 10 free articles per months. After that, we ask readers to pay a small amount for a subscription and be part of our Friends with Benefits Program.

    Anyone can get our daily email, but after they’ve read 10 articles, they will no longer have full access to all of Improvised Life’s content unless they subscribe (I suspect this is the case with you). We have instituted this because, after 5 years of giving freely, we are unable to continue to underwrite the costs of Improvied Life. If we don’t charge, we will not be able to continue.

    If you would like to read all you like, just go to the Friends with Benefits page and subscribe. In the process, you will create a username and password that will allow you full access.
