Favorite Quote:
"People say nothing is impossible; but I do nothing everyday." -Pooh, Christopher Robin

Walking high,

Giving the illusion of floating,

of flying, effortless

Wavering, closing your eyes for a split second,

Tipping, tipping, falling,

Tumbling toward the ground

But the view is better from above, so you grab for a lifeline,

pulling yourself up again,

And far below,

the world applauds you.

The author's comments:

This is symbolic of life; what seems like an imperfection to you might be owrthy of applause to others. It's also a circus act, something to be enjoyed but also something risky.
