ok, so i have an addiction. i love to get outside in the woods in winter. on skis. and i particularly love being able to ski as hard as i can while doing it. admittedly, i'm slower this year than i was when i last skied two years ago. i have been to two places this winter, only four times out. but yesterday was brilliant sunshine, 0 degrees, and deep, deep snow. we skied to a waterfall and watched the water "boil" as it churned down the drop. ice everywhere. i knew the camera wouldn't be happy, so i left it home. today i skied again and it was warmer, 20 degrees. 

just after this shot, the snow whooshed down on me and i was covered. it looked like i'd been in a snowball fight. the snow that had accumulated for a week was letting go. 

i thought it was funny that there were blue blazes, so it was, i guess, colder than blue blazes.

i worked on shifu and on a tiny bit of clean up for binding. i have been thinking that i can do this blogging thing better, perhaps a series of photos like a thought process or a teaching gig, certainly i can make links that work. (thanks for your help.) i have been waiting for blogger for dummies to be released, it's due out in february. i hate the name, but it looks like it should have helpful stuff for me. i'm happy and a tiny bit achy after the skiing and yoga, but it feels good to work and be more active. it's way too easy to cuddle around the wood stove this january.
