The wonderful story of learning to use a pipe wrench. Once upon a time, I didn’t know how to use a pipe wrench. I didn’t know that there was a front and back to the wrench teeth. And so, I used it backwards. The kind mentor who taught me to do it properly didn’t berate the fact that I didn’t know how to do it, he just said, you are doing it backwards, turn it around and it will work. It did. I have never forgotten that lesson. And, I didn’t try to know something I didn’t know with him again. We worked on much harder stuff through the years. Living, dying, killing and making spaces safe in the face of no safety. It started with a kind teaching. Of course, if I had not learned, I might still be trying to take that pipe apart….
