I'm a shy person in everyday life.
I can't dance, can't feel the music fill my body, I feel like a dressed Bear...
don't talk much, usually hold back.
But, when I ski, I feel another person, I feel the forces flowing throught my body
I become a different person, livelier, and I feel at peace with myself.
Het, has said it better than me!
Skiing makes me feel alive again (imagine where I kissed my wife-to-be for the first time, on a chairlift!)
And a mountain is one of the few places where I do really feel God's presence.
Now I have two young kids, the male bonding aspect adds to the other things.
They need some fresh air, we all nedd it, as Frances has put it, I use my brain for work, all my muscles aches
for a stretch,it's good to do something physical, for a change.
