Heat to kill the pain

A sliver of sunlight on the next mountain, amindst clouds and snowfall.

A sliver of sunlight on the next mountain, amidst clouds and snowfall.

I’ve been a bit slow with blogging lately… And the reason is not a lack of things that are going on, far from that. Things got even more busy because of a long-planned week of skiing, and all the things I had to finish before then. Now, teaching is over for this semester, and since yesterday around noon, we are in a small mountain village in south western Austria.

Over the last few days there has been quite a bit of fresh snow, good for the slopes, but bad for visibility, especially since the clouds this morning were right at the altitude of the ski resort. After lunch, we saw a first sliver of sunlight, and the day ended with sunshine. The snow was great to ski on, but of course in the middle of a cloud I went into a little depression a bit to fast without seeing it, and jolted my back. But the sauna in our hotel hopefully helped to loosen the muscles again… Nothing like baking for a while to kill the pain of a long day of skiing.

I hope that over the next few days I’ll also have the time to write a bit about things that have been going on lately: A submitted paper, meeting in Paris, maybe more…. But no promises, skiing comes first!
