It’s Tuesday, the day I’ve been looking forward to since, well, since last week. I’m joining Emily at Chatting at the Sky for Tuesdays Unwrapped. I love this practice of opening up our eyes to the gifts in the everyday. It’s especially necessary this time of year, when Crazy and Nuts hijack the calendar. Join me there?
Opening weekend in the mountains has come and gone. We’ve been waiting weeks for rain. There isn’t enough water to fill the low lying lakes or white powder to cap the mountains this year. And so the long awaited winter ski season is pushed back one week and then another. The people wait expectantly. A blue eyed boy called Pascal sells me a grey coat with a fur lined hood. He tells me to keep warm because snow is coming. ‘Soon’ he says, ‘very soon’. I’m not sure that I believe him.
