We’ve all been there, staring at the ceiling in the blue light of dawn, questioning some arbitrary fitness or adventure goal we set for ourselves. So tired. So ready for it to end.
Then some spark occurs, stoked by the months of days that preceded this one. We wake, we prepare, and go after it one more time.
“Fireflies: For Those Who Suffer” is a promotional short film for a cancer research support group of cyclists who ride for City of Hope. It captures so well the point at which personal pain crosses into adventure endeavors, and how the fire at the confluence forces us forward. It’s a few minutes long, but really engaging. So many of us have been, and are, the subject of this film. Enjoy.
