Sk8ters - Gifted

You often see young skate boarders hanging out on benches or stairs. It seems to me they are at that cross road between childhood and adulthood. They're not quite ready to give up the thrill of skatboarding and yet not ready to settle into a job/career. I always admired their skill and daring as they race through town - it's as if they were born with wheels on their feet. The modern day version of Mercury.

This is profound Gayle.
Your insight to youth is special.
It is important to see the youth of today in this world now, not the way it was when we were young.
The two are poles apart.
Well done my friend.
