Thinking about the world, and metaphorically, how it is like the sea

The following is part of a comment I made on one of my yahoo groups (bell-jar artists) that I felt was important enough for me to post here.

"It seems that the ways of the world toss us hard" (referring to another poster's comment about life);

"I find that if I remember I am significant as an individual, and a single voice can change things, but at the same time, I am a small part of a very large universe, where there are many voices (I DO hear them sometimes when no one else does...), many souls, much creativity that ebbs and flows like tides...(keeping with the imagery deb began with...). I find the metaphor of our soul being a lighthouse very interesting; beyond where our light falls, there is much we do not know about, and we must count on the sea to carry it to our shores...some may be detritus (junk) and some may be treasures beyond measure..."
I love the souls on this list. We may not talk alot, but there is a shared rhythm that gives us a place to seek peace, and understanding, and focus when we lose our way.

Here is some art to help you reflect on how I see my world right now, with the snow and the peace that it provides (as long as I don't have to go out and drive in it!!)
