On that note, I’m feeling like I’m in another “spring” of my life in more ways than one. Here’s one…
A new career in my mid-40s? Well it’s not that dramatic, but many of you have seen me “retire” a few times now - from corporate life to photography and back, with some side gigs as a yoga teacher and building a mini running brand. I was even a realtor for two weeks 16 years ago. I’m either a YES woman or a bored-easily woman, but probably a mix of both.
This summer, I started helping out at the local ski lodge bar + restaurant as it became a hotspot for outdoor, COVID-friendly socializing. It’s walking distance from us here at Magic Mountain, and offered a nice (safe) way to spend time with friends. Soon into the winter ski season, I was back again. Learning how to tend bar at this age? Sign me up!
(for a fun visual, picture me balancing my phone against a liquor bottle while teaching myself to make a bloody Mary, only to then make about 20 more over the next hour while the rest of the staff was nowhere to be found!)
Have you found an unexpected isolation creation of your own this past year?
