Life has its Lighthouse, in each fleeting stage,

In youth, in manhood, and in hoary age…

In age illum’d with philosophic flame,

From Reason’s Lighthouse still we steer the same;

Calm and serene our vessels onward glide,

And share the comforts of a middle tide;

Till, the last squall by fate’s own edict blown,

Death wrecks our vessels on a coast unknown.

John William Smith, The Lighthouse, Terrors of Imagination, and Other Poems, 1814

    Your picture and quote are perfect together, Sandy! I think the lighthouse of old age has a lot of work to do.

      I have been so pleased with the photos people have shared with me. Jim took this picture. He is the man I met online that is a distant cousin of Sam’s.
