Dear universe.....

Yet another year of my existence on this spinning rock has passed, I can't help but reflect.... reflect on what once was..... and what will be. At this point in my life if I had to sum up all my thoughts in only two words they would be "thank you". Thank you for my life, for my family, for my friends, for all the beauty, for another day, even the shitty ones when when I loathe you.... As I've said many times before and will say again, as long as the people around me are okay and I can pay my bills all in the universe is well........

I was at work the other day having a conversation about getting older, someone was saying that my best years are still ahead of me.... it made me think about what I've accomplished, and what the future could have in store..... I realized I have already far exceeded what I set out to do. Now that I'm this far there are other things I hope to get the chance to do..... but in the daily grind its easy to lose sight of the bigger picture.... and it seems most people measure success in money and things. I never set out with the goal of just making money, I found something I was fascinated with and chased the dream. I don't seek fortune, fame, and the like, I'd rather stay incognito and let my work continue to touch endless amounts of people.... I've gotten to help some great causes, and now a lot of what I do is centered around helping businesses succeed...... helping people succeed.

Went skiing for the first time in a long time the other day, it was kind of cloudy but clear if that makes any sense. Took a ski lift up 4,000 feet to the summit of the mountain, looked around and you could probably see hundreds of miles around, breathtaking, it was hard to describe, I'm not super religious, but I am very spiritual, and the best way to describe the feeling is close to god. I took some pictures but they didn't really do the moment justice. Do they ever? I doubt it.

Beautiful scenery............. The low lying clouds in the distance look awesome hovering just above the mountain tops. Just to the left of the trail in your picture looks like a great place to ski out of bounds......... I used to do that a great deal when I was younger just to hit powder. Of course being on the east coast you already know our lack of powder makes us dream of fluffy white ....... Growing up near a resort had it's advantages and was a boatload of fun........... Winter carnival at the Springs was a week long party. A dare at the Foggy Goggle while getting hammered one night turned into a life long laughable subject....... A friend and I kayaked down a mogul run...... We didn't have mush time to think about it either, the ski patrol was hot on our tails.....  Alcohol induced laughs that well could have killed the both of us..........

I personally am ready for winter to end and would much rather be on the bike than look at more snow........ My son's GF took this pic while he was trying to catch up to my wife and I....photo_1.JPG
