joy http://roadskater.net/taxonomy/term/3992/0 en Joy Revisited: Skating the Silver Comet Trail http://roadskater.net/joy-revisited-skating-silver-comet-trail <p>So many times as an adult I have longed for the joy I felt during childhood. At times I find life as an adult to be a challenge as my own fears collect and hinder over time like pine straw in a skate brake!</p><p>How to recapture the giddy hysteria of childhood antics without the aid of mood-altering pharmaceuticals?! Should I go back to Bournemouth and find a white/blonde-haired kid with which to play hide and seek in the bleached stucco stair wells of the grand houses near the Winter Gardens? One of my sisters might oblige these days but they'd secretly think I was just a sad remnant of a previously well-adjusted person. I could say hang it all and move to the beach...any beach...and hope to recapture the magic of simply standing on the sand, enthralled for hours by the sun-sparkles on the water surface. </p> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Silver Comet Trail</span> <div class="street-address"> Mavell Road </div> <span class="locality">Smyrna</span>, <span class="region">Georgia</span> <span class="postal-code">30082</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> <span class="geo"><abbr class="latitude" title="33.844584">33° 50' 40.5024" N</abbr>, <abbr class="longitude" title="-84.516539">84° 30' 59.5404" W</abbr></span> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=33.844584+-84.516539+%28Mavell+Road%2C+Smyrna%2C+GA%2C+30082%2C+us%29" target="_blank">Google Maps</a>, <a href="http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=Mavell+Road&amp;csz=Smyrna%2C+GA&amp;country=us" target="_blank">Yahoo!
