It’s not my intention to bring politics and preaching into this blog, but the events of the past weekend in Arizona brought things into focus for me. I choose to live and work in a mountain town like Park City in order to enjoy the escape that a ride on a chairlift or a mountain bike ride through twisting single track can bring. Our family took to the slopes on Sunday morning, and now in retrospect, it was impressive how quickly the news stories and internet posts that I’d been reading the previous afternoon faded away…to me, this is a symptom of being in the mountains, away from the wildness than surrounds us in our ever connected and ever crazier world. I escape pressing events and happenings of the world by living, working  and playing here in Park City – how do you?
