Project 52: Week 1

/ Tuesday, January 10, 2012

My little word for 2012 is forward. You can read more about why I chose this word here. 2012 is upon us and I can feel change is coming. Positive changes. I'm excited. There are so many things I want to do, so many places I want to explore. I think that's what I learned the most about 2011 - explore and follow your heart. So forward I go.

Last week was my first trip to Mammoth. When I tell people I went to Mammoth with no intention is ski or snowboard, they are dumbfounded. All I can do is say, "snow and I don't mix well". Let me take this moment to elaborate... about 10 years ago, my friends and I decided to try skiing. After a tremendous and humiliating fall upon my arrival on the ski lift, our instructor shows us how to go down the bunny slope. My friend and I go down the slope and collide, attached at the arms, and ski directly into the lovely pile of mud that saved our fall. The instructor's 9 year-old daughter skies toward us and demands us to get up. She informs me, "I started skiing when I was 3 years-old." Umph. That was the beginning and end of my skiing career.

I spent my first week of 2012 exploring. Everything and everywhere. I reconnected with some friends I haven't spoken with in a long time. Had long talks and walks. Breathed in each moment. This week forecasts the same and I'm happy.
