If a board could tell a story…

The leash breaking.

The rake over a reef at low-tide.

The biography of the body is quite the same.

Dings are scars, scars are stripes; injuries, tales; surgeries, drama.

Honor yours.

Honor your recovery.

Witness your staying power.

Know that if you have more than a few these tales, you're no longer a rookie.

You're a vet.

And as a vet, you've clearly endured, quite wisely.
