It's a wrap for our 2019 summer of sailing! We said goodbye to our friends Connor and Andree in Kalimnos, Greece, and had one last windy day of sailing to Leros where #SeaRose was hauled out for her long winter nap, while Karen and I left the driving to other captains as we explored Venice and other highlights we missed back in Italy.
This is 19th century piano key ivory..
A year ago I met a blacksmith/bladesmith who was dying of cancer. He was super late stage 4 and concerned about leaving a mess for his daughter so he was liquidating his shop. He gave me a few really fun afternoons and the opportunity to buy a bunch of stuff out of his shop. I got a jar of this piano key ivory at his suggestion. He told me the story of how he got it: visiting a junk yard and bribing the guy who was going to wreck it with a bottle of whiskey so he could spend five minutes popping the keys off the junked piano before it got smashed.
I'm finally at a place where I'm going to incorporate some of this ivory into a project and it makes me feel all the feels to think about that guy, Dave, and appreciate and feel super humbled by getting to stand on the shoulders of another maker's time/energy/thoughtfulness/creativity and reap some of that reward. Stoked I got to know you, Wind Dancer Knives. Your roses sit on my display table every week. .

We said our sad goodbyes to our friends Don, Shelly and Dan in #astypalea, one of the more remote islands in Greece, as we near the end of our 2019 summer sail onboard #SeaRose . Connor and Andree will sail with us for our last week before we haulout. Sunny days, moderate evenings, and shops and restaurants closing for the season, despite great sailing conditions. It's been a friendly reminder that there's so much beauty in this world, untapped. As I stare out to sea this morning, it's not hard to be reminded also by the beauty and grace that our friend Emmy brought to this world. May your soul rest in peace after such a long battle. #rememberingemmy
