Best known as a legendary martial arts expert and inspiring cultural icon, Bruce Lee was also a profound philosopher and poet. Viewing the practice of philosophy as inseparable from day-to-day life, Lee carried a small pocketbook that he would fill with training regimens and general notes, as well as thought-provoking reflections, affirmations, and writings. To this day, more than 40 years after his untimely passing, these writings continue to inspire and motivate generations.

My friend Erik Proulx captured 74-year-old Austin resident Charlie doing some incredible flips of a diving board. Apparently he does so every Sunday 5pm, like clock-work. Yes to routines, and yes to growing old gracefully and full of life.

Cat lovers, this is for you:
