Lights In The Distance
We are all drawn to light. We plan the daily activity of our lives by the rhythm of its presence and absence; we use it to symbolise our emotional well-being; it is a metaphor for our understanding; we crave its spark for renewal; we seek its heat for warmth; we have made it a metaphor for hope – especially when we catch glimpses of it at the end of a long dark tunnel; and even in our funeral rites we sing of its power to bestow a peaceful eternity. For us, lights in the distance have often come to represent everything that is comforting, safe and familiar. Lights in the distance are often a sign that we are nearing home. Or if not home, then perhaps the next adventure!
