What Snowboarding Means to Me

I think a film like this describes exactly what snowboarding is for me. It’s a glimpse into an another world, it’s a glimpse into my world, if I choose to make it mine; I don’t have to be jumping off cliffs; I don’t have to be there everyday; but I have to be there enough and believe enough that it will still be there for me until I come back; so that when I sleep in my bed, I am sleeping among the stars and trees as much as I am sleeping in the same corner of my life as always. When I juxtapose the silhouette of my face, as so many others have done before me, with the silhouettes of trees, I am envisioning this: the total coexistence of something few can have with the feeling that I have everything.
