  • The worse my eyesight becomes the more important seem my feet to grow. They need to learn to feel what my eyes cannot see: steps and stones and obstacles on the ground.

    To be honest I am not content with how far thjey have gotten, they need to improve.

    Did you see that man, who crossed the Grand Canyon on a rope? Last year? I believe his name is Wallander or something similar. He is fourth generation of a family where everyone does this kind of dangerous and crazy stuff, his grandpa fell to his death balancing on a rope between two skyscrapers in NY, I Heard.

    Well, I could hardly stand it, but I watched him walk that rope, just on TV, but I nearly died for him. He said that when he opened his eyes he got dizzy looking at the canyon Wall in front - the rope was swinging, there was quite a breeze going.... He closed his eyes then. He wore special shoes that seemed to be made out of very fine and thin leather and I watched with fascination how his feet seemed to FEEL his way foward and they did and he did not fall and he made it to the other side and now is even more world famous tan he already was before.

    I want my feet to learn to walk like that.

    Not even on a rope, just a normal sidewalk!
