Man on a Wire

In 1974, Philippe Petit did something amazing. 



He shot an arrow attached to a wire across the space between the twin towers in New York City, and tight roped. This was not just a crazy stunt.  Look at these stunning pictures.

Petit was an artist and a dreamer who created something magical that morning. Although few people saw him at the time, these pictures capture the joy on his face even as he faced danger and death. Petit continues to think and write about art and creativity, but that moment may have been the greatest in his life. I find it inspiring what people can dream and think and do, if they have the courage, the skill, and the team to do it.
