Smiling faces: The Bio’s behind the smiling faces are an indication that the people are sincere about their love of the mountain.
Their Bio’s offer up: major surgery, pending death, grieving loss. financial distress, family breakup, and yet, there is this present appreciation of something greater than themselves, and they are not puffed up, or trying to be who they are not, they are just very humble and gratified with being here, on the mountain.
The people whom I have met have been helpful and kind, and after exploring for example the fellow who is pointing to a Balsam to indicate the NB of sap aroma-therapy; this man was my ski instructor, also an author of many books, level 4..alpine and cc skiing…yet I never knew this…I only knew that I was taught well.
So on this occasion of my departure from the mountian, I have only one wish for you, my friends and family, may that which brings you meaning in life, come in great abundance.
All the best for 2013
