Walking Island

I design around the waistline... After being told by multiple women (postmenopausal), that the waistline vanishes once you are no longer able to bare children... I have noticed this to be true. Even women in the best shape tend to loose her curvature and become a bit more level.
The hills and canyons that make up each woman creates a unique piece of land, an alluring island, a place of enchantment. It's important to let people see your gradient hills, because one day your arched and contoured sphere might become a shapeless plateau.  Love your island, it's the home for your soul-

Trees are chic antiques

The wise old tree knows a thing or two:

-- Drink plenty of water
-- Remember your roots
-- Enjoy the view of life
