What the hell is a Ground Zero Zen Master?
It's Michael Hickey, ladies and gentlemen! Last March, when I told Michael that I wanted to go to the D team in four years, even though I couldn't ski, he said, "OK" and agreed to be my coach. He got me fit to start the season strong, and then worked on my skiing from a very zen place. Patience.
Michael has been more than a skiing coach, though, he has been a place that I can go for a reality check. He lets my blab and makes sense out of the psychosis that is my drive, and points my compass.
For that reason, we've decided to call Michael what he is: the Ground Zero Zen Master.
Thanks for your perspective and patience, Michael!!
