building connections

We are back in Maine after a week in NYC. I am going to try to post about things that stuck with me in NYc and not just talk about things that everyone sees. First in my mind is the Starn Brothers Big Bambu on the roof of the Met. On Roof of the Met has become the summer sensation but this is a different vibe than most. I initially missed the Rocky Paine elegance of last summer but these knotted and wipped together connections are staying with me. The Makers of the structure are climbers and there seems to be a language all there own for how the nylon ropes go together. Next time I am there I want to go during working hours and hear how they are thiking about these knots.
