Sweet Meniscus… In a word? Impeccable.

sweet

The most prolific comparison of the human body in relation to earth, is that we share the same make up. That is, as with the earth in which we dwell, we too, are 70% water. This fact, in itself, offers much insight into why we are so drawn to the water. Sweet Meniscus is the […]
