A lot of comments here for little reply or acknowledgement it seems. Hmmmm ??

Fear not the sky, for if from it you fall you quite simply die. Walk the deserts without supply or mountains on way up high, when the time comes to go its a time only you will know & can choose to say goodbye. But venture further on from our solidified & earthly bond to beneath the blue and so release yourself into, then unto a world so unforgiving in its inhabitants & environment do you commit yourself to.
As many have gone before & sadly never returned, only through tasting this tale of pure luck & narrowly averting their fate should serve as a reminder to one & all that sometimes & ONLY sometimes ... Heaven indeed CAN wait.

Hi Melissa! I just watched your survival story on Animal Planet. What an amazing story! All of your photos are fantastic as well. I consider myself a shutterbug but certainly not a photographer.
We all have our trials in life but yours is extraordinary!
I'm very glad that you're still among the living! Well done! :-)

You never know what you are capable of until the question is asked of you, and then you are the sum of your experiences. I'm sure what you now see through the lens is different than what you saw previously, so your photo book will be worth having .. annotate it with some of your thoughts.
