conquering the butterflies

Jordan Matter has taken photographs of dancers in various poses around Tyron Park, NYC (as well as other places) for 'Dancers Amongst Us'.  All well and good, but the reason l have put this photograph up is because, although l am not scared of heights and will prat about near edges way up high, l still feel butterflies in my stomach when l see other people (such as this dirty footed Health and Safety ignoring risk taker) laughing in the face of gravity, leaning backward over a wall.  Probably because l wouldn't wish to do that pose myself ( and would look a lot worse), but mainly as it's one thing overcoming the butterflies and fear, but ultimately, l still want to survive to tell the tale afterwards.  I bet she never even completed a Risk Assessment beforehand.
