Before I left town, I had the opportunity to go to New Belgium’s Clips of Faith short film festival. Of course it was fun to try the final few New Belgium beers that I had never tried and hang out with my soccer teammates (Jay was out in the field for work). I was also pleasantly surprised by the film selections.
The final film left me misty eyed. This was based on a couple’s 5 month road trip to South America. The similarities between their adventures and our adventures on the road transported back to the highlights of an epic road trip.
As I watch the couple climb over sand dunes I laughed thinking about how Jay would tease me about my obsession with sand dunes. I hate sand and refuse to hang out at the beach, but I couldn’t get enough of land locked sand dunes.
Besides the fun flashbacks, I was also touched by the final narration of the film.
The narrator asks:
Is it possible to be happy with this life?
Did you enjoy your story?
These questions get to the heart of what we are still trying to ask ourselves.
I hope you enjoy the clip!
