“You can ward age off; you can prolong your life.”

Today’s post is dedicated to Jack Lalanne, the famed health enthusiast who died yesterday at the tender age of 96. After designing work-out equipment and nutritional plans for countless slobs, Lalanne’s record of feats will always manage to shut up all those ‘can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ disciples. I thought this an appropriate time to toss up a few really great photography exhibits around the city. Following from the conversation at Luceo’s opening, new tricks are around every possible corner!!!

First of all I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick
question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had
trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Appreciate it!
