curvedspace Sunset tonight, it was pretty.

I keep thinking it's the weekend already, anyway, it isn't.

  •   curvedspace @irenya hi there, if you're familiar with the Tarentaise valley, or the ski resorts of La Plagne and Les Arcs, you'd see a similar view. Hope that helps. 3h

curvedspace Happy Tuesday everyone.
Missing this already, but the cols are starting to open as the snow recedes. Most definitely time to find the hiking gear.

curvedspace Lac du Chevril, Tignes. The sun hadn't had long to warm the top of the lake, consequently there was a lot of mist and steam as the cold and the heat fought it out. 3w

curvedspace Cliffs and gullies, lower down the Cairn Coulior you have to pick your route with some care, but speed is good too... My local mountain looking it's very finest.

curvedspace It's dirty, humid snow, rainy Spring stickiness, holding onto the board too long, the run-ins are chopped and sketchy, the landings a hope and a prayer. The crowds are gone and the few tourists left don't fancy a day out with no light definition, punctuated by driving rain squalls, and who can blame them?

The ones that go out in this, and the worse Winter equivalents, they're the ones who impress me the most. They're seeking, they're honing their craft, finding the flow. Not interested in your car, your watch, your phone, looking for something less tangible, harder fought for, more for and from the soul.
A little discomfort, sometimes sacrifice and pain. The passion, the low burn rapture and fleeting fulfilment. It's a wheel, a ceaseless circle, the perfection of the moment, the definition of time passed.

There's a passage in Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance that references making good time on a journey. Pirsig twists the accepted notion of what that means and puts the emphasis on the good. It's a prelude for all that comes next in the book. It's also what I'm getting at here; the time is yours, make it worthwhile, make it have meant something, make it good.
