At the End of the Road – Which Way?

Which way do we take at the end of the road? Turn left, turn right, turn back? Or try something completely different? Try to swim, try to fly? Put up a tent and try to settle down?
Stormy Weather, Skagens Gren
At the end of the road. By Detlef.
Put up a diner, catering for the people at the end of the road, inviting them to sit down, to share their stories about the road, the way, the sea, the sky and new horizons near the rainbow’s end, prepare their food, wash their dishes, clean up their rooms when they left (where to?) – making ends meet, making a living.

Here is a song from the end of the road. The lyrics are in German by Heinrich Heine, from his “Northern Sea” cycle. Sitting at the fisherman’s house, looking at the sea while the dusk is setting and the fire at the lighthouse is starting.

At the end of the road there is the start of something new. Exciting, strange, frightening – unknown.

    Really enjoyed the tune, and glad to know we can gather in this way, at least if the electricity keeps flowing. “What happens when the juice goes down?” were the dying words of the Indian Chief Moon Face Bear who was attached to life support systems in a hospital as a tornado ripped through the town wiping out the electricity…

    So neither chief’s hospital nor my ISP had a backup system. Seems to be a case for Corporal Radar O’Reilly.
