Finish line

Yes, this is totally heavy-handed and edited so as to tug uncomfortably at your heart. But two things: 1) I’m headed to San Francisco to celebrate the new year, and some of these shots make me feel like I’m headed home. 2) The scene where the girl is struggling sums up so much of the last year of my life (and probably many of your own) that I had to pause the video, get up and walk off my emotion. And then I sat back down and watched that scene several times until I could feel the soil on my knees.
