My Idea Of Heaven


…Reclining in shorts and t-shirt 6 inches away from 6 feet of snow, on a Sunday evening, at the foot of a 10,000 foot high ski mountain, with the burning sun still high in the sky, after a perfect day of skiing on and off-piste with my best friend 10-year old son, having relaxed in the hot tub, cooled off in the swimming pool, played an hour’s worth of fussball, a glass of admirably ambitious Idaho-raised Rhône imitation red wine in my hand, in a proper tulip wine glass (a wine not normally available by the glass but specially opened for me by the Inn’s wine-friendly waiter), reading the local alternative weekly SLWeekly’s Best of Utah 2006 special issue, all in all a more entertaining, reader-friendly publication than the Village Voice, NY Press, Time Out, L and The Onion put together, listening to the grooming machines working their way up and down hill preparing for another perfect day of line-free lifts, the violin solo from ‘Baba O’Riley’ filtering through the late afternoon air from I don’t know quite where, and I haven’t checked e-mail for over 60 hours… It does not get any more perfect than this.
