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.
