How to drop-in. from AK's blog

Having gotten the start-from-non-elevated-planes phase basically mastered, you proceed with a new approach. Start from the top. The the same top, relatively-speaking, you've made it to from the bottom countless times before. 


It "should be" transitive, I remember thinking with the tail parked against the coping, staring still, staring down from already familiar heights but from perspective of a stillness with not a single iota of precious momentum I clung to once like a crucifix to carry with me. It isn't transitive. Working your way up to this level is one thing, "gathering" momentum is how you learn to navigate the curve - form a neutral and coddling middle-ground. Falling into it is a whole 'nother thing. 


Pump. Up. Touch. Push. Down. Pause. Pump. Up. Touch (burn momentum and flare - pick a trick). Down. That's how you learn. It's safe. It's gradual. You're in control at all times. 


But one day you're going to want to do better than that. Why work to the top - overcoming gravity - when you can just start there and let gravity assist?


So you do that, and that Y axis has eyes as cold as ice staring into them from stand-still. You have to surrender to it. I don't remember that being an easy thing to do at first.


Dropping-in is learning to fall from the start. To descend. To surrender and catch yourself and caress the ups. It's an instant of "I am going to relinquish control" and a "..." followed by a "so as to pocket the momentum of this illusory disgrace, gracefully"


It's only when you over think-it that you're going pull-back - hesitate - and you're going to get hurt. Otherwise, it's basically free energy. You learn a thing or two about commitment, faith and surrender with even such a "mindless" craft as skateboarding. 


The first step is to commit - wholeheartedly - to an obvious and deliberate fall. 




Such as it has always been. That which orbits simply continually falls into and misses in a way one could only ascribe to grace considering what a collision would actually result in.

No. We're not doing that. A few months back some autistic ass-wizard gave me butt problems for stealing his twin flame and I still haven't healed.
