for visiting my little area of “cyberspace”, which is
my 2nd choice for a location to “live”. With all the “order
now” buttons, “delete” buttons, email functions,
paper storage, photo storage, digital imaging possibilities, bill
paying options, reminder alerts, Ebay auctions, etc. etc., one can
be sooooo organized in Cyberspace!!
If one has the desire, one can totally get “lost”
in Cyberspace and put aside the stresses of the real world for as
long as you want. A brilliant library of information, one can research
and find an answer to any question and pictures of any “thing”,
including the lighthouses I haven’t yet visited. If I had to
choose between my passion for visiting all the beautiful coastal areas
of our great USA, researching the history of and photographing lighthouses
and my passion for scrapbooking and genealogy – well, I simply
could not choose!! They actually intertwine and become one huge inspiring,
passionate, fiery, expressive hobby.
1st preference for a location to live, almost obviously, would
be in a lighthouse, somewhere, anywhere, WARM, on the ocean,
with the warm sand sifting between my toes, daily, as I briskly
or lazily walk the beach absorbing the automatic relief of stress,
listening to the waves crashing and then lapping at the shoreline,
smelling the salt air, feeling the warm, moist breezes engulfing
my body, mesmerized by a beautiful sunrise or sunset and captivated
by the beam of a lighthouse guiding mariners to safety. The
life of a Lighthouse Keeper and his family in the 1800’s
was a 24-hour daily, labor-intense, self-sacrificing job and
a very lonely, sometimes desolate way of life. Not exactly the
picturesque scenario I first described!! Anyway, whenever I
can finally relocate to my lighthouse on the water, my “cyberspace”
internet store can relocate with me.
matter how impossible
it all may seem,
the power of a dream.
