Chris Ortiz and Joseph Littenberg have an insight on the better things in life. This is a very inspiring poem by a great photographer that has been in the skateboarding industry a long time. What matters???: Sidewalks? (Christopher Ortiz)
The cracks in my sidewalk should not only be superstitiously avoided but should also be examined as closely as the smoother surfaces; for the cracks sometimes provide the most useful information. I see there are many convoluted twists and turns in my sidewalk. I see there are numerous dips and valleys. I see forks that needed to be backtracked and then redirected. I see an occasional tree root that has tried to grow beneath my sidewalk and disrupt its continuity.
