Powerful writing on risk, loss and parenting.

Amazing piece of writing. Rich Weiss died my second year of kayaking with my son and though I never met him his death impacted me through mutual friends and the sheer horror of the timing of his death. Kudos to Tree for the depth of his insight and his willingness to write it down and share it publicly.

Tapping your watch means "make the call"?

Sad story nonetheless.
