Wisdom can come from anywhere. In this case, a hank of polypropylene rope is my teacher. I’ve been doing as the rope says- keeping cool where life takes me and I have to admit, things are good.
Like the rope I am there to help others and myself. I conform to my surroundings, reaching out as needed, pulling back when best. Alternately wound up and unraveled I stretch out in the surf and curl up in bed. I am the way. I am the rope.
