The Important Places

This film moved us to tears at The Slow Cyclist HQ last week; and again this morning. It's about a poem the narrator's father wrote for him when he was born; a warning never to forget the path that leads back to The Important Places: "the cave behind the waterfall, the arms of the oak that hold you high, the stars so near on a desert ledge."

Years later, with the old man's health failing, they take a journey down the Colorado River and the result is a beautiful reminder that however old we are, and whatever we've done with our lives, we're all still trying to find that path. 

You must watch it, and then send it to your parents.
