I've greatly enjoyed my time, but I no longer wish to put my body at risk for the sake of entertainment. I think about the rest of my life and I want to live it with much quality. And physically, I am grateful that I can walk away feeling as good as I did when I stepped into it.
While you may have good intentions to stick to your health and fitness goals, it also feels sinful not to indulge in unique treats when visiting a far-off place. When in Rome, right? But I have learned that if there is to be any hope of feeling healthy and fitting into the same wardrobe when I return, I have to strike some sort of balance.

The Metropolitan Opera House,

Les Ballets De Monte Carlo,
New York City,
Directed and choreographed by Jean-Christophe Maillot, Lac is a pithy remix of Swan Lake that keeps the central story intact, but dares to rethink many of the ballet's sacrosanct conventions.
Can art serve as a catalyst for revitalizing neighborhoods? It's a question being explored by two unique art projects: "Back in the Bronx," a new campaign launched by the Bronx Museum of the Arts and "Out to See," an art and music event focused on bringing attention to...
