Danny MacAskill - "Way Back Home"

This post is a slight departure from my usual themes, but I had to share it. This short film has been beautifully shot, great music with an amazing, breathtaking performance.



If we work hard enough, driven by passion for whatever it is we're doing, we can all achieve great things.

Have a great weekend, everyone. I’ll have my head down in a scramble to finish the first draft of my latest novel.

  2. There would be a lot of bruises along the way, no doubt, but if the passion is there then it's worth the effort. imo

  10. I'VE BEEN THERE!

    It's pretty exciting to see places from far away and recognize them because you touched those same stones with your fingertips and walked the same cobblestone streets. :)
