Friday Photo: Beacons

Posted on August 12, 2011 by

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?

    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. =(

    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!!
