"Not hearing much of what we say,
Take what the god has given:
Through like waves breaking it may be
Or like a changed familiar tree,
Or like a stairway to the sea
Where down the blind are driven"
-Edwin Arlington Robinson
I love stairways. Especially old ones. I hold this romantic notion that they may lead to someplace of mystery, secret rooms or even enchantment. This stairway leads down to Pismo Beach which is an enchanting beach.
