Officially the luckiest dude alive...
I might have teared up about seven times today, the most recent happening ten minutes ago following my message back from Christian Hosoi regarding meeting while I'm in LA. Christian has a pretty paralyzing story to tell, from world champion to prison inmate, and now saver of lost souls. Christian got his life back together and is giving back in a big way.
I never would have thought that we'd be standing in front of one another, like ever, certainly not when I was younger and watching wide eyed as he skated his way into the sky and onto magazine covers. Christian Hosoi...and me...I'm kinda speechless, first, that I'll have the chance to get to know Christian and talk a little about the things that we are working on, and second, that synchronicity has played it's baffling hand again.
Christian Hosoi...and me...Ask me twenty years from now what I call this part of my life and I'll say, the beginning.
