Life should be lived on the edge of life. You have to exercise rebellion: to refuse to tape yourself to rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge – and then you are going to live your life on a tightrope.
~Philippe Petit, Man on Wire
When we were in Kauai, we watched this young cattle egret do his Hawaiian bird dance. He took once step to the left and then another, wobbling. Then he turned around and awkwardly walked to the right. Every now and then, he’d try out a pirouette. He walked back and forth across his tightrope in the sky, until he finally called it a day, exalted, and a bit worse for the wear.
