|I forget about cross country skiing|
until I am compelled to remember it.
This is a shame.
|When I was too poor to be able to afford to buy a pass for the mountain I xc-skied a lot.|
I have always enjoyed it,
as I did today.
The solitude, the pace, and the effort of the thing work for me.
|It's hard to feel like I missed an epic morning on the mountain.|
When I had one
of my own.
