Description

A rugged and tide-washed beach, where lies this big old driftwood log. I’ve been watching it for years now… with its distinguishing spiral grain. There are some interesting theories on why trees have spiral grains. So this log holds a secret, something to do with the big Pacific winds, I’d guess. Quote of the Day: “Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in.” –Alan Alda
