The enjoyable experience of playing hockey is like the way a river cuts into the mountain. I have never seen so much creativity in my life it is almost like an expression. The ease of movement, the puck dashing and hip hopping into the great wide open white.
Our entire bodies bursting.
There are a probably a million things I don’t think about when I think about hockey. The way our arms move, our legs, the fit of a helmet, time itself, people starving in Defur, the collapse of the stock market, the amount of fats in my diet, the ways my eyes adjust, Samuel L Jackson, the price of gas, how hard it is to climb Denali…
It is something different and better.
Ten people flying for the first time, some move left, some move right.
