Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked
Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“

I’ve laid away my bamboo Chasen (茶筅) for too long. Today’s afternoon Matcha (抹茶) was such a delight - the soft froth brought the light bitterness of green tea and warm water into a beautiful almost-creamy concoction. I am most definitely stocking up on my matcha supplies and may throw in a Chawan (茶碗) as a small treat.
In Japan, we generally call no-bake cheesecake *rare cheesecake* .
This is a matcha rare cheese tart.
