Thinking Rope

This is not a noose.

Fishing knots are so final, but a bowline is a simple feat of engineering and utility: The fortitude to hold a 6,000 pound boat to a mooring ball in a Noreaster, and then be untied in three seconds.

I have this section of orange rope in my office and it gets tied and retied, until I can think of something to say, or how to say it.

Sometimes it’s a vacuous time wasting activity, too, but it beats the hell out of Twitter.
