Where do we get our charge, our inspiration, that pure moment when the world feels full of possibility? And how far are we willing to go, once we have made the decision to do what we love? Elizabeth Eck ran away to join the circus. Once she had created that personal turning point, she began to discover her magical unconscious life. And she found herself flying through the air on a highwire, never knowing if she was going to be caught. What happened when she found out?
