Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




Spires conspire
Built in the name of progress
Man verses nature

Beauty obliterated
Sand dunes but a memory

In response to Patrick Jennings Pic and a Word #55: Spire

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Nope. I can’t understand how folks think they can own the beach. The towers don’t even let a local set down a towel in front of their “beach space” and they are jerks about it. There are now only a few strips left of public access and the only pristine areas are the small parks.

  2. Australians treat the shoreline as sacred public space. No one is allowed to own property within (I think) about 100 meters of the high tide line. Which is as it should be.

  3. Thing is, I would be more than happy to compromise. If they hade a buffer zone like Australia or just build across the road so that the shoreline was accessible I would not be so against them. Their own attitude of so called “beach ownership” and not allowing local taxpayers to enjoy the beach (or anyone for that matter) without paying the same as tourists is what gets my dander up. We already have to pay for clean water, I’m sure we will soon have to pay for clean air. OK, tantrum over.

  5. We are fortunate here in Oregon! The entire coastline is accessible to the public! I don’t understand why it isn’t this way everywhere else!
