I did NOT take this photo. I wish I had taken this photo, but alas, I did not.

One of my best friends loves lighthouses. This one is for her.

Nope, I didn’t take this photo either. I’ve never taken a photo of a lighthouse in my whole life.

According to http://www.holidayinsights.com/moreholidays/August/lighthouseday.htm,

On this day in 1789, the U.S. Congress enacted legislation allowing the federal government control over the creation and maintenance of lighthouses. This special day [National Lighthouse Day] evolved out of this event, and in recent years, through efforts to preserve lighthouses as a important historical symbol in America.

Here’s one more photo I did not take.

I hope you are able to enjoy lighthouses today, even if you can’t see one in person.

About Blaize Sun

I live in my van, which makes me a rubber tramp. I like to see places I've never seen before, and I like to visit the places I love again and again. I like to play with color. I make collages and hemp jewelry and cheerful winter hats. I take photographs and (sometimes, not in a long time) write poetry. All of those things make me an artist. Although I like to spread joy and to make people laugh, my wit can be sharp. I try to stay positives in all situations, to find the goodness in all people. But I often feel compelled to point out bullshit when I smell it. I like to have fun, to dance, to eat yummy food, to sit by a fire and share stories. I want to know what people hold dear and important, not just make surface small talk. This blog is a way for me to share stories. This blog is made up of my stories, rants, and observations, as well as my photographs.

I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a reply
