Sword swallower

As part of my graduate studies, I learned to make a video--painstaking, but a valuable skill. Above is my second attempt, toward the end of a semester immersed in the photography of Diane Arbus (1923-1971). I attempted to contact the sword swallower she photographed, but the performer had either moved on or didn't care to answer. Instead, at about that time, while celebrating my birthday at the Palace of Wonders, I met charming and entertaining sword-swallower Charon Henning (pictured below) after her multi-faceted stage performance (she also walks on knives and glass...).
