Is there such thing as a skateboarding historian? I know I could just Google such a thing but it’s mostly just a thought that I typed out. I would love to learn everything there ever was about skateboarding. I think this is why I could just talk about skateboarding for hours and hours. It’s my passion. It’s just another example of what it means for me to be a skateboarder. I love all aspects of it.
It. Often times when I’m describing something that has to do with skateboarding, I don’t know how to refer to the act itself. I could call it a sport. I could call it art. So when I say I love all aspects of it, I could just say that I love all aspects of the art. Or of the sport. Why this is such an idea for me to concentrate on is random, I know.
Life is just a quest. As the quest goes on, we become more at one with it. It’s hard for me to believe sometimes that without skateboarding I would have a totally different mindset about pretty much everything. I wouldn’t look at stairs the same way. A handrail would just be a handrail. A waxed up ledge would just be a discolored piece of concrete. A sidewalk wouldn’t be a potential manual pad. I wouldn’t know what dedication to a passion felt like because I feel I wouldn’t be passionate about much else. Maybe computers. Skateboarding has led me along this quest in such an amazing way.
Getting older definitely helps you put things in to perspective. When I was younger, I wouldn’t have thought that skateboarding would alter the way I think. It was just something fun I got in to. It’s like a good virus. I became infected and it spread.
I’m not really sure where I was wanting to go exactly with this post. I know it’s been a little bit since I last posted. I guess that’s just how transposing skateboarding into words is sometimes. It’s super hard. So the easiest thing to do would be just to go skate. I’m kind of battling an injury right now but I won’t let it keep me down. I’ll leave on that note.
