From the Borders

From the Borders

To skateboard in such a place is to be at the ragged fringe of a culture, where skate spots and even paved places are rare. But fringes and borders are where things are wildest. The “edge effect” as it’s called by ecologists, is the phenomena of increased species population and biodiversity at the border between two ecosystems. Life thrives at the border. Things meet, comingle, and evolve there. In Vermont we are at a border. Human and nonhuman worlds meet here and the human takes on the wildness around it, becoming something new, becoming something more. As the woods grow deeper and the howls thicken, a new barbaric boarding is being born in this place.
