Skateboarders navigate life much like they’ve learned to navigate the streets on their skateboards, largely by trial and error. You have to test your limits to know exactly what they are, and every now and then, you have to overstep them again to make sure you can’t be pushed a little further. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. You may end up in the hospital, dead, or with no explanation as to why all the stoves burners were turned on and who pissed the couch from a standing position. Life’s a gamble, sometimes you gotta roll the dice.
Don’t do drugs or you’ll never amount to anything. Unless you’re a skateboarder, then you’ll probably be surrounded by enablers with opportunities of every type to misbehave and dabble in altered states of perception and self discovery. I’m not one to condone or encourage drug use, but I’m also not one to tell you what to do with your body unless it’s affecting people I care about.
