I have been swimming with 3 close friends and sometimes alone through the winters for the last 3 years. These swims have become a sort of cold water meditation. A chance to commune with the elements and cleanse the mind. To swim in the extreme cold requires mental focus and calm. The Euphoria one feels after the swim carries my mood for the entire day. I have shared many happy moments and It has strengthened the friendships with the other women i swim with. Jane Cotillard, Natalie Mayer and Rebecca Coley. They are all incredibly creative women but this is our time to breath. I am making a short film with Simon Edwards focussed on one swimmer, Jane. We have been shooting during the winter months and are just about to begin editing.
