"FEELINGS"

I should disclose that, if you don't already know, I am the father of a teenage son.

Emmet skates. He skates a lot. And he runs his own griptape company, Shady. He also films and edits. The other day he asked me to watch his new video on YouTube. I watched it alone just before I went to sleep last night and I cried. It's a moving selfy with a fitting, lo-fi melancholic feel. It gave me new insight on my son and his passion. I hadn't looked at it this way... through his eyes. It's a beautifully simple piece of an "Every Man" skateboarder, Emmet Jenkins.

 Again, I'm his dad. But I couldn't be prouder. Enjoy, "Feelings."
