Windmill Pt Lighthouse Vt photo by “godisinusall” (Flickr) / Chris Wehner Windmill Point,
Vermont, 2 miles short of Quebec, Canada. Built in 1830, at Lake Champlain.
Sometimes I dream from a location for withdrawal like this. Little stone house below a lighthouse down by the water. A warm winter-garden with large windows to look on the water flowing by. All covered with snow. Silence. No more trouble. Going to lay down my sword and shield. Listening to some old records from Louis Armstrong. Waving to some ships coming in. I don’t have such a house. But maybe I could put this photo shot by the photographer Chris Wehner (flickr member “godisinusall) on my desktop? Would support my soul feeling like if I had managed a good withdrawal at least …
