Last week I was fortunate enough to meet a new Lighthouse, the Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. I was at peace, enamored, almost euphoric. It’s been a week since I took these photos and I’m trying to find the light in me again.
The calm can live alongside the chaos. Lighthouses survive overwhelming ocean waves and storms much like we do, even when we think we won’t. Some days we feel that darkness has dimmed our light, but like the lighthouse amongst the storm exemplifies, we can always find the calm in the chaos. Perhaps the chaos illuminates our calm, as lights seem to shine brighter in the dark. Take this as a reminder that even on our worst days, our beautiful lights are still standing, giving so much to the world.
