“God I suck at this! Will I be able to walk tomorrow?” I asked my instructor as I struggled to get up with my skis on after another fall.

“You’re fine. Just stop using your brain” she replied drily.

“How you ski reflects how you live” I said freeing my feet from the darn skis and getting up.

“It is what it is. See you again, bye.”

I put my skis away, picked my camera and zoomed at the farthest hill. The image was but a mockery of the existing.  I put the camera aside and lied in the snow with the sun burning my bare skin.

It does make you reflect I thought and got lost in my own thoughts.
