The Lighthouse

“Once the lighthouse is seen, the rest of the sea is ignored.” – Terri Guillemets

The lighthouse can be right in front of us but we miss it looking backward to what has been or beyond with angst of what may come. When we trust that the lighthouse will guide us home in due time, the rigor of the sea is quieted, even in the waiting.

“One moment I gaz'd from the hill's gentle slope, All hush'd was the billows' commotion, And tho't that the Light-house look'd lovely as Hope, That star of life's tremulous ocean. - Thomas Moore, "The Light House"

“One moment I gaz’d from the hill’s gentle slope,
All hush’d was the billows’ commotion,
And tho’t that the Light-house look’d lovely as Hope,
That star of life’s tremulous ocean.
– Thomas Moore, “The Light House”
