Learning-based terrain taught me how to ski

True confession – I can’t ski. Well, I am a beginner. I am 41. I live in Colorado, and I have since 2005.

Christmas Nostalgia

For me, nothing says Christmas like the stop-motion animated cartoons from the early ’70s. The Little Drummer Boy (1968), The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974) and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964) come to mind. Even though I couldn’t remember the title of one of my favorite cartoons from childhood, […]
