My home has always been my sanctuary and must offer enough serenity to offset the stresses of my career. The pond in the backyard is a huge stress reliever for us. It’s an ever changing backdrop of peacefulness that we enjoy daily.
There were a few years when I first moved to the US where I did not own a home and riding and building skis was that sanctuary but that changed when I bought our first home in Savannah.
I am at the point where I do want to ride again but I am fat and lazy and our skis have been sitting forever. Pretty sure I don’t fit into any of my riding gear either.
