My Brush with Greatness


Bart, I saw your note about the Walenda's and I thought you might like this picture.
I was in Hawaii on business, and one of my associates was involved with a Cirque-style show in Waikiki.
I had the pleasure to meet Karl Walenda's granddaughter and great-granddaughter.

The picture attached is Rietta Wallenda (on the left), Karl's granddaughter, who has been performing
since the age of 13. She is the only member of Karl's family who was performing with him at the time
of his death, she performed in San Juan to a standing ovation five hours after her grandfather died.

She and her daughter Lyric (on the right), who is also a performer,
were nice enough to take this picture with me after their show.

Keep up the good fight!
