Sketch the vista that brings you comfort and solace
- In the film, we get the sense that in spite of all of Cole’s struggles and the difficult road ahead, that his morning run is a place where he can focus, prepare, and plan ahead. Do you have a place where you associate a similar sense of calm and purpose? Describe in words the elements that you see and feel, and sketch the actual scene and scenery with as much detail as you can. What is your experience recreating this special place in two different ways?
