Almost sledding

Shal and i have an agreement.  He can bust into any meeting i am in and say “The weather is perfect for sledding, you have to come now!” And i will stop doing whatever important thing it is that i think i am doing and i will get up and go with him to the slopes.  He has done this with great relish on a couple of occasions over the years.  Tomorrow morning might be his next chance.

But winter has been on holiday this year, and the temperatures these last few months have been downright balmy.  One must wonder if these changes in weather patterns are harbingers of even more dramatic and problematic climate shifts which are also imminent?  And as Alexis points out weather is not the same as climate.

But for this evening, i am rooting for the snow., so Shal can grab me right after tofu trays and before those calls that needed to be completed before the general managers meeting, which i thought were so urgent.

    I love this agreement! I am definitely going to make those kind of commitments with people! The only thing missing right now is the people who will want to come outside with me. I can’t wait till I’m living in a community of my choosing! I am hoping for some snow too, though I have been loving this extremely warm winter.

    also, this is so emblematic of why i love you. its a silly, magical agreement to make with someone, nurtures y’all’s connections and keeps you both young and whimsical. i love that and i love that you share these little pockets of whimsy with the rest of us. so did you go sledding?!?!
