One step and a pause. One foot slowly and carefully placed in front of the other. The audience below doesn’t fully believe how self-possessed you are, they see the tension in every step, they almost want you to fall. The rope below you bounces, you slide your foot a bit forward and shift your weight. Each step fulfilling a picture of grace and levity while masquerading your interior apprehension.
