This blog is dedicated to all of us who spent most of our adult lives nuturing, caring, and inspiring our families. Now that our children are grown and many of us are single again, we are free to pursue our dreams.

Warren Miller Muse
I love sitting around with a friends on a winter evening watching ski porn. What is ski porn you might ask? It is a movie of skiers (sometimes boarders or other snow sliding objects), skiing down slopes I would only ski in my dreams, and I do dream about skiing steep fresh powder in exotic locations.
Warren Miller is the ski movie producer that has inspired me the most. When I watch his films it is like sharing an evening with a kindred spirit. I love his voice, his quotes and the way he puts his movies together.
If I ask anybody who learned to ski after the age of five, they can remember their first day of skiing -- what the weather was like, who they went with, what they had for lunch. I believe that's because that first day on skis was the first day of total freedom in their life. Warren Miller
