One snowy day…I had to decide

…whether to go for a walk or go to the ski area.

SnowyDay1

The snow had been falling continuously since the day before – and the ski area was opening (several days early).
I felt a frenzy – to be there, to ski powder. And I felt a pull in my heart to take a walk in my snowy back yard.

I decided to take a walk.

It was so white & black. The still silence was palpable.

I saw no one, not one human footprint, while I tromped through the stark & beautiful landscape.

And I savored the small details that captured my attention.

MeSnowyDayIt feels kind-of foolish, but some times I find it difficult to decide – especially between two different play options. I can agonize over which option to pick – even when it really isn’t important.

And as soon as I started down the silent untracked path that snowy morning, I knew my decision to take a walk had been the right one.

The ski area would still be there. There would be more powder.

But the beauty & solitude I experienced on my walk that day was a rare treat.

I had a great day on the slopes the very next day
…and the season has still barely begun.

How do you decide when there really isn’t a wrong option, and you want to partake of both?

I’d love to hear from you.
