No One Taught Me How To Skate

No one taught me how to skate.
I figured it out myself, for myself.

There were no short-cuts, no trick-tips,
no camps, no schools, no leagues,
no parks and no standard.

Just me and my board.

And before I had my own board
I begged, I borrowed and stole.
I did whatever I had to do to ride.

I was driven by necessity.

There was no end in view.
No career path.
Just the moment, and the concrete
unfolding in front of me.

There was a quality and a feeling
of action in every movement.
Emotional content.
Sincerity.
Each moment a meditation.

I didn’t skate to turn pro.
I turned pro because I skated to skate.
