If you want a challenge, describe the world through the eyes of a lighthouse. Visit http://perspectivesmagazine.googlepages.com/about 218 People

    Calm Round House

    Driving along the coast something about them is just calming.  A beacon in the darkness.  A haven to those on water.  If I didn't live in the house I live in now, I would love to live in an old lighthouse.

    Oh, the Mystery

    I love lighthouses. A large portion of my home is covered with them. They welcome me home after a long day, just as they use to welcome home the ships that followed their signal. As a child I regularly saw them. I remember sitting on the sand and looking at the lighthouse. I...

    When I Was In College...

    there was a beach with a lighthouse nearby. At the beginning of the year we had a fun bonfire there. It was always a great place to bond. I went there a few times just walking along the shoreline. Loved the sand and waves. The lighthouse was gorgeous at night. One time a male...

    Ihave Always Loved Lighthouses

    Since I was a child. Growing up on Long Island, there were always the Fire Island Lighthouse and Montauk Lighthouse plus other small ones around the island to include the Statue of Liberty (which, btw is considered a lighthouse!). Then there were the lighthouses on the Jersey...

    Lighthouse Love

    I suppose my love of lighthouses goes back to childhood summer vacations.  For years we would go camping at the Holland State Park.  The lighthouse, affectionately known as "Big Red", sat just across the channel from the park.  Many a night I would lie in...

    They Always Seem So Far Away

    I Dreamt Of A Lighthouse

    Lighthouses mean security and guidance to me. They represent HOPE in the deepest and darkest hour and a LIGHT that will shine to show me the way. I love that sit stately upon a rocky cliff and warn ships of impending doom if they proceed too closely. They shine their light and...

    Stuck On the Coast

    Just standing on the rock over there, with that beacon going around and around. It's lovely. I've always been fascinated by them, and I've yet to set foot in one. I know I eventually will, someday. For now I'm stuck on the coast looking at them...

    Romance At the Lighthouse...

    There's something about lighthouses that has always intrigued me. There's something safe about them, keepers of the water and crew. Their guiding light, so faithful and true, always there, always beckoning, like a lover's hand reaching out and asking. I have dreamed of...

    Got To Live In One

    I love them...all different kinds. It's a shame that so many have been decommissioned and replaced with those soulless automated ones. I used to fall asleep listening to the fog horn and seeing the sweep of the light just across the point. But one of my best memories was living...
