lone sentry

From this angle, the old lighthouse looks more like a sentry guarding the sky than a signal showing the way, but I suppose it is both really. Ships sail from here to far off oceans and back again; and the tower's forever flashing light relentlessly signals hello, goodbye, showing them the way. Dreamers come here too, imagining long forgotten pasts and futures yet untold; and the tower's forever flashing light matches their heartbeats, beat for beat, urging their dreams, as a sentinel of hope.
