I have only been inside one lighthouse in my life, and that was the one at Point Loma, in San Diego, CA. I was enchanted with its wooden spiral staircase, and enchanted by the man who brought me into the lighthouse, so zings were pinging in my heart.
I've always loved the lighthouses I've seen pictures of. So solitary amidst the great sea. Oh, to hear the waves crashing throughout the night.
A lot of them have narrow walkways to their door, and they ice up in winter time. Makes for beautiful photographs I've seen.
*A free-write is a type of automatic writing, where you just go with your stream of consciousness non-stop. There's no thought to spelling or grammar, and no editing of words. Supposedly this opens the mind up to greater creativity. They can be 5, 10 or 20 minutes long. Suggestions for freewrites are always welcome.
