The Mountain Is Calling
December 3, 2017
When I went to sleep last night, I had thought about taking today off from skiing, give my muscles a rest from the effort of skiing myself back into downhill form. Maybe I’d get on that last bit of unpacking I tasked myself with yesterday. Maybe I’d catch up on the laundry. Maybe I’d do one or more of the many things on the to do list that sits by my laptop.
But when I woke up it had snowed. Opening the curtains and then the blinds (I like it dark when I sleep, very dark, cave dark), I saw this:
It snowed more than was forecast, seven beautiful inches according to the snow report. So I will ski. The mountain is calling, and I must go.
