The young man and the sea

He was just about to turn 30 when the doctors told Hayden Peters he wouldn't live a long life. "You should start to confront end of life plans," they told him. "And you should not pass on this gene." In other words, don't have kids, they warned.

So Hayden sought refuge in the ocean. The power of the sea brought everything into focus. "I think my problems are so big and awful and horrible... Then I get out into the ocean and I think, 'Whoa, my problems are tiny. Minuscule compared to what's going on out here.'" 

A must-see. Visually stunning and moving.

An awesome aerial video of NYC.
