Those who do not have the power over the story that dominates their lives - the power to retell it, reexperience it, deconstruct it, joke about it, and change it as times change - truly are powerless because they cannot think new thoughts.
- Salman Rushdie
Trip-sitting for a dear friend: before
"Who will prefer the jingle of jade pendants if he once has heard stone growing in a cliff?" Lao Tzu
I'm just off to the Netherlands with a dear friend. They're planning to take psychedelic truffles and have asked me to 'trip-sit' for them. Thinking about the different things I can do to support them, I came up with the somewhat 'clunky' acronym IDSPM. It stands for Information, Discussion, Safety, Practicalities & Measurement.
