VALUE JUDGEMENTS ARE DESTRUCTIVE TO OUR PROPER BUSINESS, WHICH IS CURIOSITY AND AWARENESS
First eye splice. A proper splice usually retains all of the strength of the rope, unlike knots which always come at some cost in strength. Splices always seemed like magic to me, and now only more so having done one. Rejoice has several lines that are knotted but should be spliced, so hopefully the wonder won’t give out before my abraded fingers do. #svrejoice#gettingfree#marlinspikeseamanship
@dahlia, an hour after pulling a woman who passed out and fell onto the BART tracks at Montgomery back to safety. She had to shout to get help from just one of the thirty or so people standing nearby on the platform. I’m so lucky to share this world with someone so deeply aware that we’re all in it together and who doesn’t run from shit but runs to it. You’re my hero, baby.
Checking the head sink drain for obstructions.
Right around now twenty years ago I dropped this extraordinary being off at her house after the road trip back from the playa, and I was never less ready for a journey to end. Now it never it has to. #svrejoice#gettingfree
