...a boy named Steve went skiing every week in the winter. He had big muscles, lots of energy and the ability to fall with out breaking or spraining anything. There was also a girl named Deidra, who learned to snowboard and hardly felt the bruises on top of her bruises which she acquired after falling all day.
Then they got old. Steve ran out of free time and money to blow.
Deidra began to realize how cold it was and how much work it was.
Then one day they decided "We will NOT be old and boring! We WILL enjoy the beauty of the mountains! We WON'T break any bones!"
So up the mountain they went, and it was glorious, invigorating, and beautiful. It was perfect. And they lived happily ever after.
"Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves, without any insistence that they satisfy you". Dr. Wayne Dyer
