I had to laugh the other day when, with a friend, he called me out on my “euphemisms”.
To understand this… the definition of euphemism is – “a mild or indirect word or expression substituted for one considered to be too harsh or blunt when referring to something unpleasant or embarrassing”. I had too laugh because his innuendo was accurate – “an allusive or oblique remark or hint, typically a suggestive or disparaging one”.
I can go on and on with this stuff. What started the conversation was a comment about anchors and life. My statement :
“Rescue anchors are not just for rescuing people from danger. In a way, they are also like life-lines, providing safety and security in times of need. Just as you would use an anchor to keep a boat from drifting away, you can use rescue anchors to keep people safe in dangerous situations. And just as the heavy weight of an anchor can hold a boat in place, the strength and stability of a rescue anchor can keep people from being swept away”.
What brought this convo about the seemingly endless loops of disconnect I have with so many things and people. Thus I began a moderate attempt to determine my plight.
- Swept Away
Simply put… Without Anchors, We Would Be Lost! But With Them?… On Earth As In Heaven!
I have included a few TECHNICAL THINGS for more “meaty” stuff.
- Using Removable Anchors for Rescue and Rigging Are Great
- Why are Rescue and Rigging Anchors More Important than Anything Else?
- Bombproof Anchors – Anchor Considerations in Rope Rigging Systems
Peace on your Days!
