We all walk one of these. I was watching some locals walking a tightrope at last weekend's NW Folklife Festival. I thought of figurative painter Carol Aust's work which sometimes features ordinary people walking the tightropes of their lives, trying to make it despite economic odds, self doubt, juggling ten things at once, and carrying loved ones along as they balance on high. It was great to be able to observe carefully the techniques several walker's used to get across the line. This one's for you, Carol! A few more shots at More Seattle Stuff.
