Ah ha moment

There was no alarm and no mad dash for the door. There was a gradual awakening, a leisurely breakfast and then an organized movement. Slowly, like the sun breaking over the mountain tops, it came to me. We don’t need to

 

rush up to the slopes as they provide us with “enough” when we get there.

I started skiing back in the winter of 1977/78. Lift tickets were a lot less then but they represented a lot of cash for me. They still do and so I think we should ski long days to make every second count. But I’m not 19 anymore either.

I’ve spent the last four decades skiing with the same group of fast skiers. They ski hard and “go for it” each and every run. But they all figured out about 10 years ago that every run doesn’t have to mean every run all day until your legs burn out. What can I say; I’m a slow learner. Maybe it’s the frugal part of me not wanting to waste money or maybe it’s that I am always pushing hard to “keep up” and don’t want to be the weaker link. Maybe it’s just cause I really do love it and want to make every second count.Powder Day!!

But I’m 61 and not 18. Enjoying each run for however many runs we have in us for that given day. Plus days off if we need them. I’m finishing up this post on just such a day. Some puzzle time, a bit of Netflix and an awesome powder snow shoe followed by a brew or two. Yep I needed that.

I have had a love of the written word for my entire life. It's no surprise that eventually I found a platform where I could write. It's random; sometimes funny, occasionally sad, maybe even at times from anger and I lean towards creative photography and hands on crafts. I have a few blogs that high light these interests.

    1. Thanks. It’s often more of a head game for me. After all these years I’m still improving but do lose my confidence easily. Fortunately my other half is good for me and helps me get it back.
