ROCK'S BLOG: Remembering Anthony Bourdain

June 8, 2018

Still totally blown away by the loss of Anthony Bourdain.  If anyone epitomized living life to its fullest, it was Anthony.  I was always envious of his passion & sense of adventure.  No filter.  Willing to trying new things without even thinking twice.  Never afraid of the unknown.  But we really don't know these people we see on TV, the movies, the stage, or even walking down the street.  We don't know the inner demons they might be battling.

Let Anthony inspire you to reach out to a friend, a co-worker or even a stranger.  You never know what a difference a small gesture can make.

And now Anthony...

“Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”

"It’s been an adventure. We took some casualties over the years. Things got broken. Things got lost. But I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.”

“If I am an advocate for anything, it is to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. Walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food. It’s a plus for everybody.”

“Without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, and moribund.
