In the evening when the light dims down and dusk sets in. Its a long twilight. An endless blur of beauty. the golden rays well on their way to set light on others. Its an eery time when the silence sets into nature. As things find there way home. Cozy up on the deck with that wide open space rolling out in front like a drive up movie. Settling into your rocking chair pulling the blankets up tight as the horses come back from the field and the pots are set on the fire. The musty smell of stew and fresh bread. Fresh flowers wilting slightly finally getting a break from the days heat. Its the time for reflection, for family, for security and calming. Its my favorite time. To sit and laugh about the day and to plan for the next. This time of year with warm days and long evenings. When the rough and rawness of the day lets the true nature of the land show its beauty. Its my time of year.

Europe in October is absolutely the best! The beauty at this time of year is out of this world. To be able to ski all morning and then hike all afternoon wins my heart over. I had the opportunity to head over to ski in Italy and Austria with Sarah, baby Resi and team Mexico. That was a perfect way to get back on skis and get all the cobwebs out. Then I headed over to Soelden where I trained with the US ski team. The whole camp went smoothly. I was able to ski high volume and the weather was pretty cooperative! It was so much fun and I am so thankful for all the people who helped me! This was a great trip in the books and an even better way to start out the season! Looking forward to Colorado!

summertime dreaming….. Thats it thats all. Summer is gone, but it went out with a bang and it was amazing! I love summer and especially an amazing one in the mountains that raised me!
a great way to end it was celebrating my beautiful cousins wedding and spending every moment in the mountains hiking and camping and jumping into crystal clear lakes! Can’t wait for next summers adventures. I have all winter to plan them out!

So far its been a fun summer of love. Running around the US. Spent a week with Kevin in Santa Cruz in some icy ocean water. Amazing skiing up at Mt Hood with Erich Sailer and the rest of the crew. Always a ton of fun and very productive. I felt great on my skis and we had some challenging conditions a couple days and the rest was perfect! It was nice to be back on snow and give myself that reassurance that Im doing the right things! After that a weekend on Maui to celebrate our little Caras wedding and then Sun Valley to celebrate TJs wedding and now finally home and curling up in the bed with that warm summer breeze blowing threw the house putting me right to sleep! Man I love this place and cant wait for a good ol’ wyoming summer!

Sprinkle her ashes her love it will grow wild and free like her soul. The clouds will build the rain will fall, everything you question will become something important to earth. It will bloom in spring and die in the fall. Summer will bring beauty, winter, she will be blanketed in white feathers of snowflakes. The circle of life will send itself into a beautiful tornado of passion for all that she was worth, for all that she believed in. For all that she was, there is only love, when the heart misses the ones that can’t be touched. Let those tears fall down your face and plunge off your chin like a waterfall for there are no reasons why you can be happy until you have grieved. Life is so fragile and beautiful and this is for sure not the end just the beginning of something else something different something we don’t know. so never fear the unknown but drown yourself in what she wanted. In living your life as best you can. To show her everyday how much she was loved and how much she taught you. Show her the beauty she gave to you as she watches over you as your angel. and live baby girl with deep deep passion.
Dedicated to a beautiful life.

When you are out on the vast plains. Its just you the dirt and the weather. The wind caresses your every inch. Each moment makes you more raw more real, it breaks you down until there is nothing but raw true beauty. Your mind is your only friend and it holds such power over your emotions. With each rolling cloud that comes billowing up over the hills, it brings you that much closer.
They know true Freedom

Gawwwwdddd I love skiing. I don’t want the season to end….. I could keep it going for so much longer….. Guess thats a good thing. This last month has made my whole season so awesome! And of course its because of all the people I have been around. All the good energy, all the random hang outs and new people and fun adventures. Life ain’t dull around these parts. I am so happy to be on two feet and skiing fast. Great way to end a season and begin a new one!…… How am I going to be able to wait alllllllll summer before I get to race again…… Motivation!

Lavender laughter…. She can’t hold in that laughter, it fills the earth, it makes you laugh so hard you can’t hold it in yourself. Its from some deep deep region of your soul, from another world. I grew up with that laughter, this heart wrenching laughter. Its my favorite feeling. When you can’t do anything but let go and laugh. I can name the few women in my life who have the ability to laugh like that. They are all crazy brilliant women. My mother was probably the first that I can remember. Its something spiritual and confident. It makes me feel safe. Lavender laughter is a gift and a treat for me.
That moment when you look into someones eyes and you read a story that they might possible be unaware of. How amazing is a silent union. How humans interact. look me in the eye and you see the truth. Like the deep sea or the prisms of the geysers. The many layers of a million feelings and emotions. Peel them back as you search deeper. The color is a reflection of your youth. The beat and hum like a song that takes you away is like those moments spent in the eyes of a stranger and delicious lavender laughter surly awaits.
And for all those other moments, you can dance. Dance around the world as if no one is watching….

Don’t put yourself in the box of darkness, never to be seen, never to be looked at. You are too pretty, to elegant to lay deep down. I want to hear you speak, I want to hear your sadness I want to hear your voice. Its like a bird that soars in the storm, you almost cant feel it as it drifts and dives until it catches, your voice is heart warming. That sly look on your face. Don’t you be looking at me like that. I can’t hold it in. I just tip over like a tea cup on the edge of a waterfall. Dropping until I shatter all over the marble floor. Into a thousand tiny pieces that no super glue can fix. I love the idea that some things can’t be fixed and that some things though they seem impossible can be fixed. I am an animal. More than most, I want to hunt and run and live and laugh like an animal. From the deepest part of you. Find that animal, get into your head, your deep zone of weirdness. Its not weird its real. I want the raw the real. Like the dirt. I want to kiss you like the earth does each summer on the shore of leigh lake. It gets up all in their in your toes into your blood, I soak up that dirt. Its so real and raw, I love the raw. A fresh wound is so wet and it stings and its magical how your heart almost jumps out of your blood as it spills out of the fresh cut. Its a beautiful color. That color of real raw intensity. Its too real for some. I like that part of humans. The animal part. Find it and run with it. Make stress caffeine, make hate love and make your brain go wild. Let it run and become something real something raw and free. Something of your own. Own it and make you yours. Don’t be the shadows a coffin wishes it had.
