I tell people that growth is sometimes more about a reunion than anything else.

A few weeks ago, I was at Venice beach watching the young generation of skaters catching air. It reminded me of who I wanted to be, once. But there were also an older man my age, tearing up the pool just like the kids. He probably drove a BMW and had a mortgage. He was instructed to pick up dinner I’m sure. But decided to dance with his flow state for a few hours before dealing with life again. I watched with envy.

The next day, I purchased a skateboard.

I felt heavy and old. Skating never felt this hard. After eating shit a few times, I started to get the hang of it. Every time I went up the ramp, and then back down which seemed like a fifty foot drop, I was thrown back into the 80’s. I was fourteen again. Crooked teeth. Unscared heart. Eyes filled with wonder.

We’re so busy trying to chase who we want to be, we forgot that who we are is already in us.
