I had hit the sweet spot of skiing. At first I was thinking of an air stream and how to connect notes. Using turning I could see the seamlessness of legato playing. However, what if these image was used to reflect the airstream and phrasing. You can see the perfect rising and falling and the exact spot to breath between phrases. You can also anticipate where the skier is going. Everything should be that easy.
On a side note, the cafeteria was selling "Carolina Barbecue." Of course I had to try what a Colorado man called Carolina sauce. The sauce used vinegar as a base and used several more spices than normal. The consistency was more soup like with everything floating in the vinegar. The meat was shredded instead of pulled and had entire gloves of boiled garlic throughout the meat. Interestingly the garlic was more the consistency of pulled pork than the dried out shredded pork.
