...Let us thank the Earth
That offers ground for home
And holds our feet firm
To walk in space open
To infinite galaxies.

Let us salute the silence
And certainty of mountains:
Their sublime stillness..

from In Praise of the Earth by John O'Donohue

It's a wonderful and cold time to be in the mountains.  I got new skis, alpine bindings and rudimentary avalanche knowledge thanks to So Cal Avi Center. Ready for sufferfesting.
