What is the difference between glory and ugliness? One can be live on in legend for either or both, maybe. These things depend mostly on the look of a smile or the sound of a laugh. History does not repeat itself, because there is nothing to repeat. Patterns were invented to distract the gradeschoolers and 9-to-5ers from their silent march to death.
Time is not a river--time does not flow. Time is muck and mire. Finite beings wade through the swamp of eternity. The demigods among us leave footprints: friendships, flat-brim ballcaps, energydrink sponsorships, television shows, and skateboard companies. Days pass. Paragons emerge. Leagues are founded. ESPN begins to take notice. It is late September and you wake up in a cold sweat. You've lost control of yourself. This is not a game anymore. This is for glory. This is for ugly. This is skateboarding: the greatest show on earth. Just do it.
