Roller-skating at indoor rinks is an activity that I have enjoyed since I was a teenager. I continue to skate as often as I can for fun and exercise. I view roller-skating as a metaphor for life in that I believe you must keep moving, stay balanced, remain focused, change to the beat of the music, and engage with others who share a similar interest.
