The Impetuousness of Youth
Our annual ski trip to Nanshan, just north of Beijing. And like yesterday, we have the place if not to ourselves, then near enough. None of us are that good, but Naomi makes up for it with a fearlessness that is at times quite scary (Alyssa preferring a more cautious approach). Funny moment when four of us attempted to disembark the chair-lift leaving three adults sprawling and Naomi calmly gliding off as if she'd been doing it for years. Once we'd picked ourselves up, we joined her at the brink of the piste. "Wow, it looks scary. Here goes!" And she was gone - and I couldn't catch her.
