Going Solo

I skied solo today.

I like skiing solo.  I like snowboarding solo, too.  Not every day, but sometimes it's nice to be in the mountains on my own.  Sometimes I go mountain biking solo.  Sometimes I go road biking solo.  Sometimes I go trail running solo.  Sometimes I cook dinner solo.  Sometimes I make love solo.

Wait a minute...

I like the ease of being on my own, not making conversation, just flowing through the mountains.  I make my own decisions, based on my own observations.  Sometimes I enjoy the company of friends, but other times I find I'm my own best company.  I don't have to hurry to keep up, or wait for anybody else.  My pace and my breathing mesh and I focus on breaking the trail in front of me.
