It was a snow white color filled sky yesterday. The dry cold air hit my face as I walked to the store to pick up some last minute grocery items for Thanksgiving. Christmas lights lit the street poles and sounds of the Salvation Army’s bell rang in my ears. It felt like the holidays. With a grocery bag in one arm, I walked out of the store and standing right in front of me was the red bell. Ringing louder this time. Reminding me of what giving thanks means and how sometimes we need to look up and be grateful. Just be content. It’s a peaceful feeling really. I continued my walk home as a few snow flurries swirled around me thinking about the meal that most of us will be sharing tomorrow. A meal that we gather around the table for…hopefully with family, friends, and lots of smiles and laughter.
I turned 40 on May 22nd of this year, so it has become a focus to learn how to grow old gracefully. Here’s what I’m working on.

Ask photojournalists to name a peer they admire, and Sebastião Salgado’s name is sure to crop up. The Brazilian is renowned for the long-term projects he undertakes, devoting years at a time to documenting the story of a particular people or the evolution of a certain place. [ted_talkteaser id=1729]As he describes in the talk he gave at TED2013, his attention to detail and his personal attachment to his subjects caused health problems that nearly killed him.
Thankfully, he didn’t give up. His most recent project is Genesis, which he describes as “my love letter to the planet” and for which he spent eight years traveling the world to photograph humans, animals and nature in their native glory. (To read more details about Salgado’s process, see this rather lovely Q&A with TED photographer Ryan Lash.) The resulting black-and-white images include the astonishing shot, above, of a Southern right whale, which he photographed in the Valdés Peninsula in Argentina in 2004. Together, the series forms the focus of a book (including a vast, two-volume edition that costs $9,000 and comes complete with a wooden stand designed by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando; mere mortals can pick up a hardcover version for $69.99). There’s also a documentary, Shade and Light, filmed by Salgado’s son and Wim Wenders, and exhibitions in cities around the world.

Silver Lake‘s TheBlack&TheWhite (former As Tall As Lions members Julio Tavarez and Cliff Sarcona) released another single “Where Were You” from their forthcoming EP produced by Justin Kaupp. The track is a serenely grooving almost completely instrumental electro melody that mimics a beat-pad daydreaming about becoming a jazz instrument:
if only he were vegan…. then he would be a perfect fantasy boyfriend

David is one of those guys that looks great in anything . . . a tee shirt & jeans or a jacket & tie . . . doesn’t matter, he wears everything with confidence. I’d call his look classic rebel (with a touch of disheveled thrown in for fun) . . . think James Dean or Steve McQueen. There is nothing trendy about his personal style — it’s good taste mixed with a casual attitude. He usually arrives on set in jeans, a tee shirt (with the neck stretched a bit), a worn leather jacket or tweed blazer, a great watch & proper leather shoes.

In order for us to break the chain and take back our health we need to educate ourselves and familiarize the next generation with cooking, nutrition and growing plants. No one truly gains respect for anything until they understand how it works and how hard it is to get it.
