Man on Wire

Man on Wire

Saw Man on Wire last week in New York. It is one of the most beautiful, moving films I've ever seen. But it took me a while to figure out why.

It's just a guy on a tightrope, walking back and forth. Big deal. But the passion that he brings to his craft reminds me that pleasure in life quite often comes from simple, frivolous things.

To see 60-somethings talking about crazy stuff they did when they were 20-somethings was very emotional. Phillipe Petite's love for his craft is a reminder to pour ourselves into the people and the things we love.
