I spent this weekend in the wonderful company of a beautiful little girl from St. Louis and her family. It's amazing to be in a place where individuals and families come to enjoy life, and I get to be a part of their experience. I am truly blessed.
On one of our rides this afternoon, we shared the chair with a man from Manhattan. He asked a lot of questions about my life - and the picture I painted for him was (my reality) : I ski in the winter, am taking my time through school, and have spent a good part of the past three summers running rivers.
The man looks at me and he says "What do you think you are, some kind of diety, that you get to take the best of life and just do that?"
And I'm sure I laughed, and was pleasant, and didn't gloat too much.
