Push, Slide, and Repeat

We know you lead a busy life, full of activities, many of which are required of you. Tell us about something you do simply for the pleasure of it. (100 words or fewer)


Living between a large hill and the flat space of an empty parking lot makes for the perfect skateboarding terrain, temporarily gifting me with wings as I fly down the incline without a helmet, falling into the soothing rhythm of push, slide, push, slide.

I take a deep breath, absorbing fresh air and a panorama of my surroundings, usually a glowing yellow-orange but occasionally a deep blue-black.

Sometimes I watch the sun rise with the early birds, feeling both small and powerful to be the only one observing nature’s wake-up call.

Everything’s going to be okay.
