When everything ends the Highline starts.
At least at this short moment you come back. Fear appears and squeeze the heart forcing it to pump the blood. You do the steps, feel the webbing under your feet, the wind passing by. The balance fills you in wavy way moving you from the left to the right. And there is no more to feel. Except of the pain.
It comes when you fall, but as long as you feel the fear of it, it pushes you to walk more and makes you stronger. Pain is good in very simple way. You are afraid of it, you don't want it. You are scared of walk but your body doesn't want more pain so you do the steps, it makes you walk.
You escape from the pain - you want to walk. Finally you want something. For this little short bit of the moment you Want something. You have a goal, something to focus on.
On this huge Empty Ocean appear your private island, one inch wide but long enough to be happy at least those few moments, those steps.
