It’s not a snowman you would make! It’s not a man at all. I have always resisted calling a snow-sculpture a ‘snowman’ because it is so gender specific name.
Why can’t it be a snowwoman?
But anyway, my sculpture is neither a snowman or snowwoman. Snow is sitting on a chair! It is fully natural — without human touch.
The photo is taken at a parking lot. Recent rain had created a small puddle and it seems the trees seen in the reflection are saying that the ground is supposed to be their home – not for the cars or the hard bituminous surface.
To break his own this man, who calls himself a Tantric Master, stood on a Manhattan street in a clear container filled with ice for an hour and 12 minutes.
Wim Hof, 48, told that he survives in the ice by controlling his body temperature through tantric meditation. It was in 2004 Hof set the world record for full body ice contact endurance by immersing himself in ice for an hour and eight minutes.
The Dutch man, commonly nicknamed Iceman, holds nine world records including a world record for longest ice bath. In 2007, he attempted, but failed, to climb Mt. Everest in shorts. It is told that he has plans another attempt in 2008.
Hof claims Tantra, an Eastern tradition of ritual and meditation, is behind his extraordinary performance. (CBS)
On March 16, 2000 Hof swam 57.5 m. (188.6 ft.) under three feet of an ice lake near the Finnish village of Kolari, deep inside the Arctic Circle. Using no special equipment, he wore only swim shorts and a pair of goggles! Here is the video of his adventure:

I will be going away for a while. Will bring some photographs to share with you.
I am busy preparing for the trip. As it is only for 4 days I couldn’t decide what to take and what not to. The place is supposed to be a bit cold and it is my first time there I don’t know what to expect.
Let me hope it will be a great journey. I will share the experience with you when I return.
Bye till then.
If you dropped by … and see me screaming in the heading…. You know what I might be doing now..
Well… surf around and come back later !!
See you then !
Everybody is blogging… why not me?
That is the thinking that came in my mind when I decided to start this blog.
Don’t let that motto distract. I am going to make a bit different from those everybody.
But it sure is difficult to get time and efforts. I will try my best and make it the best in the web.
Your support will be highly appreciated.
