A little Wiz for the post….PLAY IT LOUD!!!
Was today a dream? Six inches at Homewood that skiied like a foot. 15 laps. No lines. Fresh turns every…single…run. Check out the awesome iphone shots!!
I was so ancy and amped on every lift ride back up. I couldn’t sit still. I kept thinking “This snow isn’t gonna last long. I gotta get it while the gettin’s good!” But lap after lap, the only tracks I was crossing were my own.
I finally calmed down a bit, took some deep breaths, relished the fact that I wasn’t dreaming, and just kept giggling to myself.
I kept thinking how the day was like a metaphor for my life. “Things are just too good to be true.” “How freakin’ lucky am I?” “I never want this to end.” “If this is a dream, I don’t wanna wake up.”
2009, 2010, & half of ’11 were tough years for me. But ever since I got to Cali things have just kept getting better….and better. It’s amazing how the lows in life can provide a contrast and make you appreciate the highs that much more.
Before I knew it, my legs were shot and I was ready for my last run, which was the best of the day. Hiked out to Quail face for sick lake views and about 15 sick turns.
Such a good feeling to finish on a high. So stoked on skiing and life right now. So lucky to be alive! ….have such awesome people around me! …and perfect health! Year Thirty Three started with a bang and I’m absolutely determined to make it the best year yet!
Oh, and how sweet is that song!?!
