The Greatest R.I.P.

I was invited to cover this Tribute for Mr. Muhammad Ali at The Staple Center in downtown Los Angeles a few years back and thought I would share this photo again.
The most fascinating thing about this portrait is that is made up entirely of boxing  gloves!

Here’s one of favorite quotes from Mr. Ali:

“Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even.”
~Muhammad Ali 

I had the privilege of meeting Ali about twelve years ago and it’s a memory that I will never forget! My blessing go out to his family and friends.

If I can find the pictures from my first meeting with Ali ( before digital so there in a box somewhere) I will share them with you.

Eating Healthy

I shot this some time ago while visiting the San Diego Zoo and while watching this animal (I forgot what it’s called)  eat it reminded me of my new diet or Life Style as my doctor calls it anyway. There’s a lot more green stuff in my life now!
Well I’m happy to say that I see the results of what a healthy diet and exercise has done for me. I’m now twenty five pounds lighter than I was five months ago.
With that said, here’s the quotes that really motivated me, besides my physical!

(1) Getting older is inevitable, how you age is optional.
(2) We cannot change what we cannot acknowledge.

Stay Strong
