Sometimes it's nice to find a beacon that guides one from the burdens that press so darkly upon the heart. What I needed was some light to shine its way through the fogs and troubled waters of hopes dashed, and a heart drowning in the oceans of sorrow. What better a symbol of hope to sailors fearful of being awashed upon the treacherous shoals of life, than the welcoming ray of warmth emanating from a stately lighthouse. And so, to honour those fellow Caledonians and Steelheadians who have reached out their arms of love to me, and pulled me in safe from the storm, I give you this gift...the lighthouses of Steelhead and Caledon. It was a project I had begun several days prior, and thought now was a fitting time to finish it.
I would like to give a special thanks to Lady "Whoop-ass" Protector Diamanda Gustavson, who went with me on most of this journey of the soul photography yesterday evening, giving me her company and a ready ear! Another thanks goes to Major Erasmus Margulis, who offered me the sanctuary of his lighthouse. I don't think he expected me to use it in this way. *smiles softly*
