"My shoes, they're dirty"
Actually, the real quote is "my shorts.. they're dirty". The line was spoken by skateboarding great, Ray Underhill in the epic skate movie, "The Search for Animal Chin". The quote is part of the funniest scene in the movie. Sadly, Ray passed away recently after a long battle with a brain tumor. We had a death in our family this year as well. You can think it over from every angle but death doesn't make sense. All that we can do is live, love and make the most out of every precious moment we are given. When we think of the people we have lost we must focus on the joy that we shared with them. We must not fear our own mortality. Knowing that life wont last forever is fuel to get up every morning and make it the best day ever. Breathe deep, spend lots of time with the ones you love, laugh, write a song and skate hard!
