I saw the first kid leaning up against an old building near the water, and rode up and told him not to move. That works around here, because everyone knows me (one of the neat things about small town life). He held his pose.
I just like the way he was standing there, being cool, for no other reason than he was a kid with a skateboard, just being a kid.
I gathered up the other skateboarders and told them to line up against the wall and be cool with him. Then, I told them to skate for me.
One of these days, I am going to get them to teach me skateboard. It looks like fun. It is never too late to try something new. Wanna try it with me, Bagman?
"Skateboarding has been connected with the punk culture and rebellion. There has just been a need to show that skateboarding can be a positive thing." ~ Brandon Nelson
Forever Young, my friends. Forever young.
"May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you're far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart you'll always stay
Forever young, forever young
Forever young, forever young." ~ Rod Stewart (partial)
