"The sound this big thick wooden tongue makes, the thick tongue hitting against the lip of the bowl as it goes up and then against the back lip as it goes down, and then when it hits the bottom, is pretty astounding. It has something to do with what a pier does when boats hit up against it, wooden boats...I don’t know, but somewhere in my life this stirs up something that feels pretty critical."
