the reason i love the 40 seconds of this clip so much is because, to me, it represents life. the running, the breathing, the gorgeous sunrise, the music. it reminds me of simply being ALIVE, and what that means--how simple and hard and beautiful living can be...how small life's moments can seem, but how, sometimes, they end up being bigger and wilder and more wonderful than we ever expected.
"i like living. i have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow; but through it all, I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing."
