more about skiing

Okay, I know I've posted a lot about skiing lately.  How beautiful it is.  How good it feels to be moving my body in the out of doors.  The fun times with Jack and Jr. and friends.

Today another benefit occurred to me.  Skiing requires me to think about what I'm doing, to pay attention and focus.  And we all know I cannot do more than one thing at a time, so in a sense, skiing is like going to a movie.  It's a fine way to forget about everything else for a couple of hours. 

Four runs today with a bit of snow falling and a temperature of 16 degrees.  Didn't think for one second about taxes, or cuts in pensions, or work, or family nonsense.  Just like watching a movie.  While burning what must have been massive quantities of calories.
