Everyone knows the expression Skate it's not a crime and I always thought that was a funny way to describe somenthing: describing what it´s not. But at least for me, after 16 years in love with my board, it was a point that I discovered the real meaning: more than just Skate, it's the Totem that put us trainning even when we thinking that we are not. That put us together, yes or yes. It's the pin that give us super powers, the secrets of those who know how to fly. (hover the mouse above the photos and check more comments)

Thank you skateboarding.

Ligiane Xuxa it´s one of the many gifts that the skateboard give it to me. We are both from São Paulo and we know each other from the old Espraiada skatepark. The destiny puts us together again here in Barcelona, where I have the lucky to share the adventure of life with here. AE forever //  @xushines

Skate without limits that embrace the whole experience of being alive. The totem that puts us as a group and despiting all the probability, put us as family in this world. The secret group ready to fly into the way that starts with the Call to be wild.

At the time, I wrote about: Where the  hours are days, the days are months and time don´t exist.
I was healing.
