To the Lighthouse
I've said it before, but again, I'd love to live in one and be the literary beacon that guides wayward ships of thought around the rocks and toward safe harbour.
They stand for hope, and a lot more. There's tons of them around the Great Lakes, but they're half the size of the Atlantic lighthouses. Still...
Loved the pics... so colorfull, so blissfull...
That is such a sad thought that lighthouses may be obsolete. There is something so enchanted about them!
I think I'd work-over your opener though.
"The lighthouse of the cousin who once dubbed me a 'Long Tall Drink of Silence' is out of commission now."
You meaning has to be crystal clear here. Just a dash or a semicolon would do it.
Your cousin is out of commission?
The lighthouse is out of committion? See?
Otherwise, a lovely piece.
Now to go a bit off topic, what is the title of the Secret parody on youtube? I can't find one from SNL. =(
CD: In 1982 I was already proving my incompetence on the baseball field AND the soccer field.
PP: yeah, they've become an icon of the old days.
Beth: For some reason I can't find it on youtube anymore. youtube is being very cranky today it seems. But, I found it at: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=2017736457.
I know tropical beaches are the best... but something has to be said for our more pastel coloured shores of our temperate lands...
(only real disadvantage is the WATER is too damn COLD for swimming unless you're a genuine massochist!!)
As I said - a great post - Hi I'm just coasting through via blogs of friends of friends through endless degrees!... thought I would say hi... come by mine if you like.. you're most welcome: http://gledwood2.blogspot.com... see you there maybe sometime... all the best 2u... from
