Well, step 1 to clearing up this horrible disease:

More time at EpicSki!

Step 2: A visit to the ESA or Gathering.

Step 3: More time at EpicSki.

Rince, repeat.

Sounds like a cry for help, ssh. This lady needs an intervention.

Plus she wrote "high" for "hi", which Freud could tell you is a subconscious message to the conscious brain to leave aside the petty cares of the flatlands and gain some elevation. Why? To get into SNOW.

It's economics. People without expendable cash can't ski. You don't hike for your turns in Indiana. I can see the loss of passion for something unattainable.

Skiing is still a sport for the economically comfortable, unfortunately, and always will be. To suggest a $1000+ trip to attend an ESA is bordering on insult, pardon me. SnoBJ, if I had the money, I'd send you there myself.

Bonni, I understand what you are saying, but the ability to hold a vision of loveliness in the midst of hardship is the flame to which the spirit can direct itself, even as the body is wracked with pain and the mind is torn with conflict. When I have been at the bottom before, and I assure you I have, the vision of a snow-covered mountaintop kept my head up, my eyes forward, and my shoulders level. I might joke that skiing saved my life, but I believe it too.

Good grief...

Yeah, well, sometimes the spirit waxes bad poetic too.

(I don't know about ESA being in the picture, but a snow covered mountain can be highly inspirational.)

Just how broke have you been before, nolo.......and for what length of time?:
I'm sincerely interested.

Since SnoBJ has posted here, she's been in one form of 'down' or another, and when you're yard saling for utility money, somehow it seems callous to dream of snowcapped hills you can't get to without some substantial outlay of cash.(Indiana, ya know)

Inspired by visions of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous: they're playing with wild abandon, spending a cool thousand for less than a week, while you're scrambling for macaroni and cheese.......uh huh.

: May your yard sale have a sunny weekend, and all you trash become treasure for everyone else, netting you a handy sum.

Bonni, you're right. Skiing should only be dreamt about by the rich, when they're not dreaming of polo and skeet, of course.

My apologies to you, BJ, and best wishes for your return to skiing some day.

Hope things turn around for you BJ.

Tough crowd today.

Been painting much?

Ooooo wow... I just came in and found all these post to answer too..it took me a few moments.

Comprex, I am still painting on and off, I have a few new things I haven't added to my website. I am planing to do a bunch of ACEO's this weekend and there is a festival going on in town. Perfect for a Garage sale on Sat, hoping a bunch of people will stop by. Or go to Notre Dame with Hubby and wander the campus with my girls while he and his mom go watch the game. (his mother won tickets)

ssh, I would LOVE to go to one of the ESA or Gathering but traveling cost money, and Money is something we are short/tight on. I should hang out here more but I get depress thinking about how much fun it would be to ski. Kind a like torture.

nolo, I know you mean well. For the past several winters I have been stuck inside in torment of the fact I had no vehicle to get into Michigan. We lack Mountains here, we just have hills, and Michigan has bigger hills then we do.

Bonnie!!! You are always top notch in my book. You know and understand what I meant. (psss.. my grammer and spelling hasn't improved any either...Hehehe ) My oldest is in first grade now! wow.. didn't I start hanging out here when I was pregnant with her? The other rug rat is only pre-school age. Hehehehe


Gpaul.. Nice to meet you! I did have my nick as Sno Eagle but somehow it went back to this... lolololololol BJ is for Becca Jane just so you know.

BillA, This is NORMAL! They are all just tough love.
