(up up and away!) (I believe I can fly!) (all the crude flying cliches cannot prevent this one from being one of the most glorious things I have done in my life) While in Switzerland, I wanted to try something adventurous.

And I had decided that this was to be my “alone” movie. I was going to be brave for… Continue reading Brave-ing It
