Friday Photo: Beacons

Sometimes as I’m moving around in my day, an image gets stuck in my head that I can’t shake. Sometimes it conjures up a memory, a feeling, or provides an impulse to do something. Often, though, I just see something that I want to capture in my mind for no particular reason-it just speaks to me. I’d like to offer these images up for ‘thought contributions’-as a way to generate a community of ideas together.

This week’s Friday Photo was taken a few months ago, on a special ‘girl’s weekend’ road trip I take every year with four of my most favorite women.  Each of them brings different gifts to my life:  humor, wisdom, insightfulness, and compassion.  I haven’t seen these ladies at all this summer, and I guess I’m missing them!  I know that like this lighthouse, they are shining beacons of friendship in my life.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this ‘Beacons’ photo- please leave me a comment! 

What image do your friends bring to mind?  What gifts do they give to you?

  1. I too am a very visual person and images definitely make a long lasting memory to me. I really love a light house in general (we live on the east coast… There are a couplnaif lighthouses near us). But I like the way it looks the lighthouse is ‘shooting’ out it’s light… Great picture!!

    Thanks for visiting my page and sharing yours with me!

  2. My mom would love that photo. I think I have different things that bring up memories: a song, a thought, a smell, etc. When I think of my friends I think of coffee, sitting around a kitchen table, missing them. Our lives are so busy we rarely have time to connect. =(
