Sometimes I’m envious of these birds. They just know exactly what they’re supposed to do and they do it. They have their flock of friends and they’re always together. They rely on each other. They get to balance on a wire all day! They take off when they want to, and land when they want to. They get to soar through the sky! And every evening as the day begins to end, they gather together for a feast, then rest on the wire to catch the sunset. ⠀
⠀
I’ve always been obsessed with watching them, the way they move and act, alone and together. They remind me of myself and my friends! I think we’re all searching for flight; it’s why we climb, jump, skydive, even fly in airplanes. Then again, maybe it’s just that me and the birds understand each other, both living our lives balancing on a wire ⠀⠀

The Finger of God ️ One of the most magical places on earth, and one of the most incredible highlines of my life. What started as a total pipe dream shared among friends oceans apart from each other finally became a reality after 4 years of planning, and one big failed attempt in 2017. We left heart broken, learned a lot, and went back the next year with a plan and a fire burning hot. Here’s to realizing your dreams! Massive thanks to the team that made this a reality @balancecommunity @rafabridi @pablosignoret @newton_slack @ighorpereira_slack

@sparklyninja This astounds me

@charles_post Epic!!

One of the most powerful lessons I ever learned is that STUMBLING is different than FALLING. Stumbling happens; and it happens a lot, for many different reasons - distractions, imperfections, weaknesses. Falling is more of a choice. Falling is when you’ve exhausted every option under the sun. You’ve thrown your arms, adjusted posture every way possible, you’ve screamed and you’ve fought. You have nothing left; falling is the end, the surrender. ⠀
⠀
Here lies the difference between the master and everyone else: what’s in their toolbox. Over time and through diligent practice, the collection of tools grows. Suddenly we learn that there are options other than falling. Body position. Adjusting posture. Bend the knees. Engage the core. Straighten the back. BREATHE. The master tries harder, gets creative, and isn’t afraid to fail by attempting things that may or may not work. ⠀
⠀
We’re all on our own journey and I’m still working on mastery myself, but my advice for all who’ve asked is this: get out there and fail. Try harder. Get creative. Build your toolbox. Be vulnerable. Be honest with yourself. Don’t give into that fall, even though it feels like you’ve got nothing else. Oh, and have fun! ⠀

Years ago when I was struggling to figure out “what to do with my life,” I realized what a ridiculous concept that is because I’d been looking at it through the eyes of societal expectations. The flawed concept is destination driven; it’s like saying “I’ll be happy when _______.” So I changed my mentality to ask myself what I want my days to be filled with. My answer was and still is “I want to do inspiringly cool shit with my friends, and have fun doing it.” ⠀
⠀
My version of inspiringly cool shit is probably way different than most people’s, but the principle still stands - find inspiration and passion in whatever you’re doing, and do it while in good company ⠀

@chrisburkard Such a fun mission. One of the best

I’ve been blessed. My life has been free of persecution and violence. I’ve been taken care of and treated with respect and dignity; I am privileged and I know that. But that’s not the case for many.  So my hope today is that, no matter where we’re standing, that we can stand up for something. Stand up for someone. Or just stand up!⠀

Keep your head in the clouds, kids. Dreams really do become reality  I’ve always considered myself an athlete and an artist, and highlining feeds both of these passions beautifully. Every step on a highline is an athletic feat, and the stroke of a paintbrush. It inspires me creatively and physically, something nothing else has ever done for me. ⠀
⠀
The last few weeks have been especially difficult not having my camera to take photos and be able to feed the artist in me, but it really has been nice to feed the athletic side a bit more, to get back into a training schedule and push myself physically. In the end, I’m so grateful; for the challenges that force growth, and for the fire that brings forth new life.

@chelseakauai And this is why this freaks me out🤣 existential ankle worries

@nothingdownaboutit I almost asked what you are doing in Utah... and then remembered that if this were now... you’d be falling into yard of ice rather than grass 😉

I recently lost my camera to a river (it’s a long story) and I’m realizing very quickly how much I miss being able to capture the world around me. At the same time, it’s also given me space from my camera to see the world from outside the lens. I’m trying to spin this into a positive thing and I know someday it won’t matter as much as it seems to now.. but I am excited to start shooting again soon!⠀

I love highlining, but I love sharing it even more! Watching my friends push themselves and face fears is such a reward, and a bond that continues to bring us together time and time again. So much fun compiling a few fun clips from this quick trip to Joshua Tree
