One of my favorite things is listening to my wife read stories to my daughter. The wife uses all these silly voices for the different characters but they never stay the same throughout the book. She does do the voices better than I do though. All my voices either sound British or hard of hearing.
Baptismal Walk by Amy Fusselman
This a nice personal essay by Amy Fusselman who took a class from famous highwire walker Phillipe Petit who eight times walked across a wire strung between the World Trade Center Towers in 1974.

The essay seems disjointed. There are basically two parts: both parts detail the class but the first part discusses how people should greet their prop the same way each day. Like a juggler saying hello to the balls he juggles or a writer saying hello to her pen. It's a nice concept to be honest. Part two discussed walking across a six foot high wire at the end of the class. This too has some potential. Sadly, Fusselman didn't go into much detail with either part. They're just sort of touched upon and that's it. Fairly disappointing.

It's just not very good. I like both things she writes about; I just wish she had more things to say about them. Meh.
