With the sky high afternoon sun
and freshly fallen snow,
we ride up a mountain to 7700 feet.
The February winter temperature is chilling!

Sochi glistens with brightly shining rays.
Our gondola ride is a delight.
We see virgin powdered snow,
feel the adrenalin in our smiles.

Stoked, anxious for a descent.
We attempt a downhill rail,
carving through rough terrain.
This slope is better than awesome!

The silence is serene.
Snowboard, triggered snow crystals
in our face, as we race,
refreshes as it sprays.

We are cutting, now,
through tree-lined trails
and accelerating as we go.
Our hearts are pounding against our chests.

We feel an internal body rush,
a climax beyond our control.
The thrill of snowboarding,
now, flowing through our veins.

******************** SNOWFLAKES ********************

We're watching the most beautiful morning snow!
Big fluffy flakes float like a fairytale ballet.
Memories arise of childhood saucer riding, skating,
and skiing in Dad's backyard.

Kid's enjoy unsophisticated basics of life,
sculpturing entertainment structures out of snow.
There is no cost, just heart, spirit, and sweat equity.
We create a carving of snow with Davinci flair.

We generate special moments in time,
celebrate hours of giggling and fun...
a lasting heart-warming experience,
a precious memory to keep!

Suddenly a bright, blazing sunshine
bursts through the falling snow.
I sometimes wish I were still there,
the silent whisper of cold winter air.

the stress caused by outsiders or people,
and pressure of the career, keep these
problems out! Bring peace in your life
by keeping good thoughts within. Silence
through meditation and prayer will help.

To have a brand new start in life,
you must believe,
you have to act,
you have to dream,
you have to believe!

To be successful,
you have to plan,
you have to focus,
you have to take steps,
you must achieve!

Has your relationship been falling apart? Why, you wonder?
Have you been really listening and seeing what has been
going on around you? Sometimes with our busy schedules,
we don't have time to hear what our partner needs in love.
Take time to talk it out. Life is too short!

World peace with freedom:
Cold, clean water and fresh air!
No dirt...without fear!

We have turned this world
into a painful place to live.

Where there is conflict,
there is peace!
Where there is bad,
there is good!
Where there is greed,
there is generosity!
Where there is selfishness,
there is sharing!
Where there is lust,
there is love!
Where there is ignorance,
there is wisdom!
Where there is non-belief,
there is belief!

Let us enlighten ourselves
though meditation and openness
to these thoughts!
Our communities would become
a better and joyful place to live!

Have you ever prayed to our God? Over the last few years, I have spent more time with God by reading and praying. God has brought me peace even though I have experienced difficult times. I truly believe in God! Now, I have to try God's way. I have to believe God will provide an open door for help. Allow God to assist in developing a plan. I must find a passion that receives approval. I believe it will not only bring me peace, but final success! Wishing you the same in your life.
