Friendship The Art of the Practice – Book Review    

By Lori La Bey of Senior Lifestyle Trends

Friendship the Art of the Practice

Last Friday I went to the book launch of two friends Nancy Chakrin and Laurie Ellis-Young, at the Marsh, in Minnetonka.  Their book “FRIENDSHIP the Art of the Practice,” is absolutely incredible!  It is a celebration of Friendship at its finest.  The photography is magical and a gift in and of itself.  Nancy Chakrin has captured Laurie Ellis-Young and others in exquisite yoga poses in interesting locations throughout the world.  Beautiful quotes which reflect friendship, are positioned a long side each photograph.  All this for under $10.00. 

This is a fabulous gift which has the quality of a high-priced table top book, only in a smaller more intimate style.  If you are looking for a great way to tell a friend just how much they mean to you, you won’t go wrong purchasing this book.  I bought several that evening and I encourage you to do the same.  As a society we tend not to tell people how much they mean to us.  Be proactive and make your friends day special by giving them the book “Friendship the Art of the Practice.”

  1. What do you think concerning adding some more pictures? No offence, page is really nice. Just as I know visitors acquire information much more efficient if they see certain helpful pictures.

  2. You’re making a lot of great points during this blog post however it is very hard in my opinion to concentrate on this article on the complicated page design.

    1. Hi Anastacia

      Thanks for writing. As for my post the other day about a childhood memory, actually I will be doing a video this week on a tool I developed which works beautifully for dealing with the time when someone forgets your name and who are you. It is called “Your Memory Chip” If you want more information on it prior to the video coming out go to and click on the star burst to get yours free!


  3. Hi Lori,

    How are you? Had a good time this past Friday evening on your radio talk show. It was so nice meeting Tom and he is a person I will never forget. The love and untiring spirit he gives to his mother is amazing. There should be more people like him.

    Hope your mom is comfortable. Just wanted to drop a brief note to you and say thank you for inviting to be a guest.

    Also, I am having so much trouble trying to get into the Memory People group on Facebook. I am typing “Memory People” in the search window, but it never comes up. Told you I was technically challenged…lol.
