Life should be a calculated risk

Life should be a calculated risk
On a perfect powder day
And the sun breaking through
On the untracked line
You’ve been eyeing for months

The last thing on your mind
Is an avalanche
But it shouldn’t be

Prepare for the probable
Then enjoy the calculated risk

On skis, or a board; in life

This post inspired by Jennifer Nichole Wells’ wonderful One Word Photo Challenge. This week’s word is avalanche.

I’ve already posted Risking the Avalanche, which describes why the risk is worth taking.
