It is hard to admit that I am closer to 50 than I am to 40. I have always felt like I was especially young at heart. And I still do. My life began on the sunny shores of southern California in the cradle of the surf/skateboard culture. I was always into sports, team sports, of course, but my preference was always the more personal forms of expression. Surfing, skiing, mountain biking and skateboarding. And I was a sponsored amateur at the latter. Riding daily for many years, hopping in and out of empty swimming pools, jumping over things and being towed by speeding cars. These things seemed normal to me up until my 30s. Now I look back and I am so grateful I have health insurance! Priorities do change.
