Life is on the wire, the rest is just waiting. – A quote from the great Karl Wallenda, who lived his passion through to the last moments of his life. Should we all be this brave. In an interesting aside, his great-grandson Nik plans a high-wire crossing from New York to Canada, across the mighty Niagara Falls, this summer.  There hasn’t been a wire walker across the gorge in over 100 years. The photo at right shows Maria Spelterini making the crossing in 1876. As if the stunt wasn’t sufficiently heart stopping, she wore peach baskets on her feet.
