According to our local newsrag, there is a need to build "fish ladders" to allow salmon to get over/around dams in Northern California.
After I took a moment to smile at the images a "fish ladder" can generate, I realized that I wish someone would build something similar for me.
A dam is, after all, nothing more than an oversized wall, and I feel as if I have one of those planted square in my path. There's no ladder that I can see to get me over its peak.
Salmon-like, I've made my way upstream against some pretty strong currents. But this is one big wall.
There are certain things people cannot do alone, and I seem to be stuck against one.
