Imagine Flying in the Sky on a Skateboard
Dirk had a dream recently about flying in the sky on his skateboard. This was purely a dream that was full of imagination. The dream felt really good to him. There was nothing that made him feel bad or upset about it. However, the amount of traveling he did while on the skateboard was amazing.
His skateboard is his world. He loves to ride it any chance that he gets. His parents get on his case about it, but he just ignores them. The skateboard has true meaning to Dirk. This is because he feels free when he rides his skateboard at the local alley for such riders.
This alley has a world skateboarders only dream of. It is not in an actual alley, but is
called this because is it venue that fits the skateboarder at heart. The alley for the
skateboarders has all kinds of areas for them to have fun at. The obstacles here allow them to
skate with as much difficulty as they want to. The alley is fun for anyone who likes to
skateboard. The obstacles are easy to expert. Many of the skateboarders love the expert areas
Dirk is now at the alley. He feels that he can skateboard all day long. He likes to be a
skateboarder and the thrill of riding one is amazing to his every need. Dirk will now skateboard at the expert area. He really wants to be tested today to display his total talents.
Dirk was dropped off here at the alley by his parents. He is alone and wants to have
fun skateboarding. There are new tricks that he has learned. He wants to practice them here at the alley and this would make him feel great inside.
Dirk is now riding his skateboard. The obstacles are tough to get around but he is
doing a great job at doing this. Dirk feels free as a bird right now. He wants to get
skateboarding today for as long as he can. He just loves to feel the skateboard under his feet.
Dirk continues to skateboard at a quick pace. He loves going around the obstacles in
this part of skateboarding alley way. Skateboarding takes a lot of practice to get great at it. Dirk knows this well and loves to skateboard as often as possible.
Dirk has skateboarded since he was five years old. He knows how to skateboard well
and feels great when he does it.
Dirk has a few friends, but he enjoys their company when they are together. He feels a
connection with his skateboard like nothing else that he knows. Dirk has done a great job
skateboarding. He feels even freer by doing this now. He is happy by what he has
Will he ever fly in the air using his skateboard? The dream he had before has stayed
with him and wonders again about this concept.
Dirk wonders as he skateboards if he could ever fly on it. He would love to be in the air
and just flying to new places around the Earth. Planet Earth is a great place. Dirk feels the more he can skateboard this idea he has about flying may come true.
Dirk is tired of skateboarding. He decides to take a break and sit alone an area here
where he can rest. He feels great now. The exercise he received from skateboarding makes him feel great. He then daydreams to himself.
Dirk is sitting alone at a break area here at the skateboarding alley. He dreams of
being able to fly around the world on his skateboard. He wonders if something like this can be
real to him. He is wide awake, but the dream feels great to him inside and out. Dirk feels that
he can skateboard in the sky. He would love to travel this way to see people all around the
The world is really a vast place. He believes that he can meet all kinds of people and
this would make him feel pretty content inside. Skateboarding is the life of many young
teenagers and children. It can be fun if one knows how to ride a skateboard. It took Dirk a while to ride a skateboard properly. However, over time he became good at it and he now loves to skateboard whenever he can.
Dreams can happen to people. However, there are times when such dreams will never
develop for a person. Dirk is a realist about such dreams. However, it would be really great for
him to be able to travel around the world on a flying skateboard. Flying skateboards have never been made. If they were, Dirk would definitely look into buying one. However, traveling around the world on a skateboard is appealing to Dirk. He can dream what he wants to for something like this to occur in a fictional sense. Dirk decides to go back and skateboard. He is well rested now and is eager to ride his skateboard some more.
It is still a beautiful day outside. The sun is shining brightly and it is seventy-five
degrees outside. This is perfect weather to skateboard in. Dirk keeps skateboarding now. He is really enjoying his time alone skateboarding and just enjoying the weather. The weather will
continue to be sunny for the rest of the day. This makes Dirk feel great and he wants to
skateboard until dusk.
Skateboarding is really an art for those who do it. There are so many moves one can
perform on a skateboard. Skateboarding can be fun if one knows how to do it. Or it can be
painful if a person has no idea how to ride a skateboard. Dirk’s time has passed while
skateboarding today. He will go home now and just dream to himself about flying in space with his skateboard.
Dirk is both a dreamer and a realist. He wants to believe that he can fly with his
skateboard, but then again realistically this would never happen to him. Dreaming is a great
outlet for anyone. Dreams can come true, and at other times they really don’t.
Dirk wonders if any of these dreams he will have will come true. This is something that
he thinks about from time to time.
Dirk has been dreaming a lot lately. He has been dreaming about skateboarding in
different ways than he normally does. Travelling in time or even through space would be great to him. However, the fictional world is great in a dream, but in his real life this may never happen to him.
As Dirk continues on in life, I wish him well. He may or may not be able to travel in
space or around the planet Earth on his skateboard. He is young in age and can do what he
really wants to. For dreams can come true and believing in hope at any age is a proper thing to do and to accomplish as well.
