I’m writing this from the “Freedom Mobile” in a Wal-Mart parking-lot in Jersey City. Today was not extremely eventful or exciting. A bit of a let-down after yesterday’s antics (skating up 5th Avenue anyone?… Consider that foreshadowing for the video Dillon plans to post tomorrow). I think we’ll start posting skating vids on Wednesdays from now on. I spent most of today making phone calls and sending emails to setup meetings and/or presentations at future venues.
It’s funny: days like today seem so forgettable and useless sometimes, but I know that they can lead to opportunities that are more than just memorable. The moral of the story? Sometimes you just have to put your head down and do the work. It’s kind of like training for a “freedom skate” in poor weather and in a lackluster mood. It’s not exciting, and it’s not glamorous, but you do it anyway. You never know what it might lead to.
We’re filming my first interview for the documentary tomorrow. I expect that to be pretty sweet. I’ll keep you posted.
