Sage by the Sea

Ever since I was a little boy, I have been fascinated with lighthouses.
More specifically so with the people who operate these mysterious seaside towers.

On a perfectly sunny day last fall, I looked out on a lighthouse.
I knew that most modern lighthouses aren’t currently man operated, but still I wondered.
Maybe there really is someone out there? Someone who knows things that no one else knows.
A shaman of sorts, maybe? The ultimate model of introspection.

So, if we search for answers on matters that may confound us,
There is a comfort in knowing that a seer might live right offshore.
