Nik Walenda walked a high wire today without a net over State Highway 41 in Sarasota, Florida. He is fine but I am still nervous.

Without a safety net, Wallenda was the lone figure against a blue sky, aided only by a balancing pole.
The morning was windy and Wallenda dipped down to one knee on the wire frightening the crowd.
