Spring is in the Air

I know... its been a long time since I posted.. So much has happened and yet the important things carry on.

This past weekend I went skiing for the first time all year. What could have been more important these last three months of winter than to experience life on the ski hill -where the scenery buoys you, the cold air refreshes you and that wipe out that you recover from reminds you that there is a lot of living yet .

I aways think that when you drive home from skiing that there ought to have been at least one moment that you were scared or that you thought..why the hell did I come down here. I always want that twinge of fear. I don't always want pain..or the "where did my ski go"

Its all about living.. enjoying life.. I have been committing myself to exercise, driving to do less work for work. Yes...I turned 50... it has been cathartic. Getting ready for the next half century- what do I need to enjoy as much of it as possible... health, money, friends.

so that's the plan

yes.. good photo's are so rare..

it is incrediblely hard to get over this 50 thing... How can I be this old? I don't feel old- its weird really-- I am just recently maturing..

The older I get, the more I appreciate the saying that "youth is wasted on the young"!
