Solstice Pledge

Dear Armchair Cannonballers,

Will you just look at this!  So terrific.  Shall this be our goal for 2017?  It is aiming mighty high, considering I have taken just three trips to the skatepark to date.  Still, let it be our goal, but let's agree that reaching it is not important, and trying it is the only thing that matters.  You know I have been working at the jump and rotate 180 on the flat now for well over a year.  My turns are not video-worthy, or consistent, and they are very s-l-o-w.  What do I do about discouragement?  Look around, and think of this song.  One more time.
