Today as I was being ferried out to our boat to continue my work with @wattsoflove, I was so struck by my captains “rock” anchor.

Although the people in Ilin Island have so very little, they make complete use of every resource they have available to meet their needs.

Nothing is shiny, new, or wrapped in a pretty box. Most things are worn, dented and repurposed. Or better described as utilitarian and functional.

I could never imagine myself or someone in my circle of friends loosing their boat anchor and choosing to use a found rock to replace it.

Although this rock and a shiny new $150 anchor will function exactly the same way, I can tell my Captian “rock” anchor has way more meaning and something to say to all of us.
