This past weekend was one of the most interesting weekends I’ve ever had.  The film project that we’re working on continues to push us creatively and physically.  Trapeze flying was one of the scariest yet liberating things I’ve ever done.  And cliff diving was quite emotional.  When we got to the state park, we quickly realized how impossible it was for me to jump off a high cliff while operating the camera.  MM and a few of our friends scouted out a nearby rock that was smaller and shorter.  They did a few test dives before giving me the safety approval.  I stood at the edge of the rock and no matter how much I talked myself into doing it, my body froze.  I stopped recording and asked to start over.  One, two, three steps… I counted as I reached the edge.  And again, my body froze.  I kept on chanting silently… Hold the camera in position, do it once, do it right, and get out of there.  My fear of swimming reached new heights and my body stood completely still.  The thought of quitting sadden me, and in my mind, hasn’t an acceptable solution.  I stood there motionless and finally… just relax.  I didn’t feel the cold water or the impact.  And within a few seconds, I felt a strong tug.  My dear friend jumped in right after me and pulled me up.  Coughing, my only thoughts were… I hope we got the shot.  And we did!  A moment of victory as we cheered and celebrated.  I don’t plan to go swimming or near water anytime soon, but am so happy that the toughest shot on the slate is now over.

Thank you so much for reading!
