“Every man walks his own path,

and every path has its fair share of locked doors.

You never know who holds the key

to a door you’ll need to open one day,

so you best treat people

as if they are all key holders.”

.

“Life is a house with millions of doors.

Here is a good strategy of life:

Open the doors, open as much as you can,

open as much as possible,

open the doors!”

“Vivid images are like a beautiful melody

that speaks to you on an emotional level.

It bypasses your logic centers

and even your intellect

and goes to a different part of the brain.

WPC: On The Way To The Beach

The path from parking to beach at Road's End.

The path from parking to beach at Road’s End.

~

There is always a long, steep pathway down to the beach, along the Oregon Coast near Lincoln City.

High cliffs march right up to the beach along much of this stretch of coast.

This path, at Road’s End, offers one of the easier access points in the area.  Everywhere there are flights of steps, pavement, and sometimes simply rocks to cross on the way from the parking areas to the sand and waves.

The ramp I used most often was long, and allowed one to drive a car or pickup onto the beach.  This is a favorite spot for weekend parties staged around roaring driftwood bonfires.

A beautifully made rock wall held back the cliff on one side, and all manner of wind-borne wildflowers grew from its cracks.

It is a steep climb, and requires determination to climb back up;

but oh, what wonderful views, along the way!
