Food for Our Mind and Spirits: Stage(d) Beauty

Sometimes it is hard to tap into our spiritual selves or find time to nurture our intellectual curiosity. Here is a section that reflects on some nourishing materials from around the web and related media channels in order to get us thinking, get us feeling, and get us reflecting on the lives we are living in this big, beautiful world. **Some Adult/Mature Themes May Appear in Links and Other Attached Material**

Here’s something that is unquestionably beautiful, even if the scenario is one that is clearly staged and timed to the nth degree. You may have seen the movie about Philippe Petit crossing between the Twin Towers in New York City––Man On Wire. You may have also read the book reflecting on that day, May The Great World Spin. So, perhaps the conceit of this is well established. Human beings are daring, and they are able and willing to do extraordinary things.

So, in this case, there is time for artistry and composition –– not only the death-defying, laughing-in-the-face-of-gravity feat, but also something extraordinary with the moon and Moab National Park as the setting.
