I Am A Lighthouse Rather Than A Lifeboat …

… I guide the way to shore rather than rescuing.

I cannot pull people onto a boat. I can show where there are rocks.

I cannot pull people ashore. I can show where there is land.

I cannot tell you if this is the right land. I can only show it is out of the water.

I am a lighthouse. And sometimes I need my bulb changing as well.

  1. To be both soft and strong is to master life…what a thought Alistair. Now here is one that I want to share with you: “When you get a bladder infection you know urine trouble.” Happy Christmas my friend.

  2. I’ll share a poem I once wrote:

                 To Be a Beacon
    

    When I am totally self-centered,
    I am a lonely island.
    When I am totally other-centered,
    I lose sight of my own shore.

    I am happiest
    when I am in touch with my center,
    yet able to radiate outward.

       --John Arthur Robinson
