My Lighthouse View

I’ve read many times, that besides their obvious function, lighthouses symbolize a beacon beckoning people back home. More personally, in the history of African Americans who were once enslaved, the lighthouse searched for near the Ohio River meant freedom and hope.

As I look at the lighthouse in front of me this morning, I’m reminded of unwavering optimism, life on steady ground and a sense of home. It’s just lovely.

  1. Beautiful. And isn’t it something that people are just naturally drawn to lighthouses? They invite comfort and the feeling of safety. A lovely view, indeed. 🙂
