Good skate today—I have to admit that the meaning of a “good skate” has been evolving since I began skating again about 10 months ago.
In the start, a good skate was a session when I didn’t fall or one where I accomplished all of the basic tricks I set out to do. A great skate, as ever, involved making a new trick, rolling out from something I thought unlikely in the first.
Now, the meaning is different, and, I fear, a good skate means getting out there and skating with other skateboarders. I know, crazy, right? At least, it’s a bit crazy for an introverted writer like me.
Still, I’ve found that while riding out on my own, I can advance in small increments, but it seems that skating with others increases the rate of trying new tricks, learning ways to improve what I already do and to further hone my personal style.
Perhaps, this is when my initial idea for this blog begins, though in an adjusted state—Perhaps, now is when I start to look for and find those most excellent people I have hoped for all along. We shall see.
Busy week ahead, so I may not get to skate, and you may not hear from me, though I hope I can make time to post other writing I’ve been working on for the blog. This will be a week of “distance makes the heart grow fonder.”
Until next time!
