How apt it was that I caught Nik Wallenda’s historic tightwire walk above Chicago with my bunch of trapeze friends. Only circus-y folks would truly appreciate the awesomeness that was the walk. Case in point, when I brought up the walk to my dental hygienist earlier, she was skeptical. “It must be some kind of illusion. How can it be real? I didn’t really pay attention to it.” Whereas the bunch of us on our friend’s amazing 58th floor balcony of the Marina City towers were so hyped up on excitement, we couldn’t stop grinning. 🙂

It’s a long way to the ground
