The Thirty-First Skateboard Donation
Of late, for a good number of reasons, but mostly because I'm so dang busy, my mood has been quite reflective and even pensive. I suspect my mental state is a reaction to an ever-expanding to-do list and is an involuntary, equalizing attempt to keep me from getting too far ahead of myself (no doubt as a means of self-preservation). It's like the Pitbull lyric, "So ahead of myself everyday's yesterday."
The point I'm trying to make is that I cherish my memories and I'm so grateful that I have such fond experiences to recollect. And this is part of what this skateboard campaign is intended to do - provide kids in our community with the kind of memories they'll be able to think about someday and smile about, especially once the inevitable rigors of adulthood take over.
Here's a jam I'm loving today that's probably driving this correspondence - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yYV9-KoSUM
And, of course, thank you to Tami and the Iron Horse Bar and Grill for providing this skateboard donation and so many wonderful memories.
