Gravity is heavy

2 Jun

There’s not much more important than gravity. Without it we would never be. And the universe would be unthinkably different. No mass. Everything infinitely spread out in the infinite. Basically nothing.

The meaning of Rollerskiing is cozying up with gravity. Downhill skateboarders get intimate with it going down. I play with gravity going up. I like the way good longboarders move smoothly and decisively through turns. Skating effectively up a mountain also requires grace and forceful weight commitment, along with better cardio.

At Grefsenkollen I cross a lot of longboarders. We all smile to each other knowingly. With my speed reducers clamped on I come down laughably slowly compared to them. But going up, I go up fast.

To each their own way of enjoying gravity.
