A Short Lesson in Harmony


I have come here for this:


And this:


I was told at my interview that guests would want to know all about me, that they would be intrigued by me and how come I am lucky enough to live in the mountains for the winter and for five months do what they have paid almost a grand to do for one week. It’s true, in the past I have been that intrigued by my own chalet hosts, perhaps envying both their commitment, their freedom and their connection to this hostile environment.

But would I envy this?


The pull out toilet with the wonky seat. Evidence of the world in motion; harmony is restored. I must pay for my opportunities.

Yoga and a healthy appetite for risk are required to use this toilet…Someone somewhere is propping their feet up and issuing a satisfied ‘aaaaaaahhhhhhhh’.
