A room of 3 glass walls filled halfway with air...in the form of balloons. I looked at this room from so many angles. Listened to the laughter of those within. Watched many braver than I squeeze through the doors. Oh! How badly I wanted to experience this.
You see, I'm a bit claustrophobic so just the idea of being covered - even in balloons - had me wanting to run and find a safe spot from which to observe. But observing wasn't at all what I desired.
Finally, one thought occurred to me. I'd just had an MRI a week or so before going to Cleveland. I stood outside the balloon filled room and thought that if I could survive an MRI, I could walk through a room of balloons. The video is mine. Yes. I did it and it was the experience of a lifetime...and the beginning of my love affair with blue.

My Saturday mornings have been spent watching the girls take swimming lessons.
Well...yes, I did watch them, but I also took photos of the water.
