Children need to move to develop their brain; it’s a natural urge. That’s why boys will run after a ball and play soccer despite how many video games are available to them, and they can’t help themselves from building with Lego bricks as well. They want to be creating something that’s uniquely their own.
Jorgen Vig Knudstorp

John Patrick Shanley
So, when you come down a big wave and everything’s perfect, you make it to the shoulder and you kick out. But, when you come down and it closes out or you fall on the way down, then this massive, basically like an avalanche. just lands on you and it feels like a ton of bricks.
