Tuesday, January 2

Brrr! After a melty sunny day yesterday... last night was blowy and cold. I was up uber late and ... man, the wind was howling!
Today came up all bright... but very cold. I am hoping for snow.
The kids are (well, mostly Geo) actually bumm'en because of the lack of white.

Snow boarding is going really well for Geo. I promise... pics and vids one day soon.
I jumped on the chair lift to scam a run down the only proper-ski-hill that was open (lack of actual snow is kicking their asses) and I really and truly surprised myself. Can you imagine in your minds eye... the way a skier can sit back on their skis while they're "bombing down the hill"? Can you see that? Well I recall quite vividly that upon our return to skiing a couple of years ago this move was all fun and stuff... but what goes down, must come up again. And I had found great distress at how much it pained my knees and legs to "pull up" from that sit-on-back-of-skies thing. Well... I did that yesterday and getting up again... was NOTHING. Non-issue. I just stood up again. I completely ascribe this turn of events to the ridiculous amount of stretching and working out that a summer of skateboarding (injuries not-withstanding) brought about.

Birthday moment...
Happy birthday brak55. May the year ahead bring you ... leisure time. :)

Impossible love...
A flight of fancy, lifted high by a shared imagination,
It remains blind to the obvious ... problems.
Impossible love...
So tantalizing and delicious, yet so stubbornly rooted in the "impossible".
Clearly, such a love can bear fruit...
but it will bruise easily and sours when the blindness wears away.
Impossible love...
A love so wonderful ... but so necessarily a love best left hidden behind friendship.
The trick is to share not only the imagination but also the truth.
To enjoy a dream is not the same as forcing it into the light of day.
Share the dream and then share the reality.
Let a friendship, that is so wonderful... continue to be just that.

K, time to go. :) have a wonderful Tuesday.
