Went snowboarding today
It was a great day. The snow in the Seattle Ridge area was good for boarding. I was making awesome turns and really enjoying them. Snowboarding is so different from skiing. Soft snow is definitely better for riding and the sport seems more mellow. I think there is more grace and smoothness to riding. It may just be that I wasn't a very good skier.

Anyway, I had a great day, gliding down the runs, visiting on the lift and just being outside. How lucky!

Oh, what a beautiful sunset tonight
It is at little later hour since we are closer to **spring**!
The sky is pink on top of the white and brown hilltops,
turning to white high in the sky.

The spring brings light and newness
which is very welcome after coming through the dark and closed down days of late fall and winter.
