misses you so much
that he hides in your clothes
to wait for your return
1. There's just so much snow. It doesn't melt, at least not like it does around here. And a lot of it remains untouched.
2. The combination of speed + danger. It's like that sagebrush hill from the link. I love having an obstacle course and I love not exactly knowing what course my sled run will take from one time to the next. The unknown is exhilarating and each millisecond that goes by where you zoom past unfettered, is exciting and you feel a sense of accomplishment. I was not knocked over by a bush! I did not have to bail out prematurely! I made it this far! I made it to the end!! These are all the thoughts I have as I sled down the mountain.
3. Uncharted territory. The mountains are big and vast. Wild, untamed. No civilized sled trails here. No one's sled (sledded? what the hey? Can sled be a verb?) here before. We are sledding trailblazers. Along the walk back we'd pick other spots we thought might be good not knowing at ALL what lay beneath us, whether it be tree, rock, empty space, deep ravine, or whatever, but being fairly certain we had a good several feet of snow to support our weight. But boy, it was deep.
"You're going SO FAST. It's like the sled isn't touching the ground and you're not touching the sled. Just Jen in the air."
"It's Stormy, with a C."
"He slept well, dreaming of himself listening to a song that made him think about dreaming..."
Do you consider your pet:
 One of the family
 Just a pet
How do you feel about your pet?
 love my pet, is a member of the family
 hate my pet and all animals and don't know love
|Good heavens. I stumbled on this and now know far too much.|
