Skateboard Friday Afternoon


White kids like skateboarding. Latino kids like skateboarding. Black kids. Asians.  It’s a time in a young man’s life when everything you really need in the world you can fit in small backpack. Seeing these kids from the vantage point of late young adulthood/early middle-age fills me with wistful longing.  I’ll trade bad skin for supple, rubbery joints in a heartbeat.
