The freedom associated with spending a Sunday afternoon in a Central Texas drainage ditch is something that will allow me to age gracefully. Skateboarding is a powerful outlet for those of us who are still able to endure the lifestyle. Photos like this will serve me well in my older age, and they will remind me that my younger years were spent outside of the normal rush to happy hour. Writing in this blog was meant to be about skateboarding, but I hope it turns into a celebration of life. Oh, how lucky I am to live in a time where I can broadcast my voice to millions with a few keystrokes.
