The Art of Letting Go
It’s one of the first things you learn when you
learn the ropes, before mending frays, the Clove
Hitch, Bow Line, Ashley’s Knot, Monkey Fist or
the Rosendahl Bend, hands will burn on a
spooling line, stand clear of a coiled rope, nerve
and a bit of luck, all you need to see
you through a payout, hands clutching thin air.
