Awakenings: Beauty of America: Lighthouses

on March 21, 2013

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Lighthouses have been the sentinels, the protectors, of shoreline after shoreline for centuries upon centuries. In the beginning, these were not ‘houses’ at all but instead simply bonfires built on hillsides as beacons to guide ships. Many a seafaring vessel would have crashed upon the rocks had it not been for the angel of light shining through the darkest of night or penetrating the thickest fog. Throughout history, the lighthouse has cast mysterious auras, sometimes romantic and often times echoing a ghostly resonance.

    There is a lighthouse in France, Belle-Ile-en-Mer, every time, evokes a certain feeling I can not describe with words. I will say something bewitching. 🙂

    Love lighthouses! They always seem to be a beacon of hope that lift the spirits. I have collected a few lighthouse ornaments and candle holders. They seems to always remind me of Summer days amidst the snowy winter days
