I watched Man on Wire yesterday, about Philippe Petit, who did the most subversive thing in 1974, which was to walk a tightrope between the World Trade Center towers. It was a beautiful, sublime act, a fantastic insanity. One of the interviewed commented that Petit approached each day like a work of art. Someone else said that in order to pass as an American, he put a lot of pens in his pocket, because Americans like to do that, apparently.

I think we are all animals, and simply making the best of it.

  1. is that framed yet?

  2. I’m thinking “stickers” now–

  3. good to see you! 🙂 YAY!!!

    “a fantastic insanity” mmmmmmmmmmm. something warm in that sentence and i adore it. maybe it’s what i’m shooting for.

    also, i think stickers are a wonderful idea.

  4. Fantastic insanity is a good goal– I think I’m only at pretty good insanity at the moment.

    Stickers would be excellent. I would stick them everywhere!

  5. yay to not being dead! i might try not being dead sometime soon.

  6. Oh, good. Dead is overrated.

  7. Another YAY for not being dead, a thought I was having about 2 hours ago, for there have been times when it was a state about which I felt less certain. As Firesign Theater expessed it, “We’re all bozos on this bus.”

  8. So far so not so bad, eh?
