“Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.”
• Saint Augustine

“Deep down inside me a tiny voice was calling. At first scarcely audible, it persisted until I could no longer ignore it. It was the voice of the wild places, and I knew that it was now part of me forever.”
• Percy Fawcett

Lamplighters VOL. VI
Our last Lamplighters post doesn’t include one single moment of victory or singular foe to be dispatched. This is about “life” and how it happens when you least expect it, and what you do with that. The 1920’s roar was still echoing through the wasteland that had become Wall Street, the Great Depression had arrived and no one was ready for it. This decade marked a generation, a generation not expecting to be in the place that came to them. The depression started in a mere moment, what marked this generation happened over years. Textbooks tell the timeline of history, but lack the visceral, palpable emotion of the epoch involved. Fear, surprise, despair, and shock attacked from all sides as “life” threatened to derail many a family’s future. As you read stories from the era, you find a strange response. You would expect to see hope keeping people in motion, working to put food on the table, what you actually see is a little different. You see one foot being placed in front of the other, perhaps devoid of hope, just out of sheer practicality. That practicality isn’t glamorous, but it is survival. As those feet kept moving though, eventually walking became slightly easier, until that walking, after a time, brought them back into hope. Sometimes when all hope seems lost, it just means you have to get up and walk towards it, until you are back in it’s presence.
So keep walking, your will is stronger than you think, time and footsteps can bring you out of some of your most troubling times. ——————————————————

Lamplighters VOL. V
The 1970’s were not kind to New York City, this much is known. The Bronx is burning, The Blackout, Welcome to “Fear City”; these were the headlines. There is another side though. Where there is fear, violence, and unrest, there is also a force for good, many times working under the radar, that rises to meet the calamity head on. What is less known, are the stories of the New Yorkers who refused to give up on their city, who stayed and kept going, who gave water from their own family’s store to neighbors in need, while the power was out and the looting was overwhelming. Fireman, store owners, artists, police, musicians, mothers, fathers, this is what brought the city through. A lamp in the darkest night can be lit by a collective, and that’s what happened in NYC in the 70’s, sometimes being tough means loving even when it hurts.

Lamplighters VOL. IV
“As my sufferings mounted I soon realized that there were two ways in which I could respond to my situation -- either to react with bitterness or seek to transform the suffering into a creative force. I decided to follow the latter course.”
• Martin Luther King Jr.
——————————————————
Many quotes are remembered and much is known about the man MLK was, but it is my hope that familiarity with his words never equal complacency of attitude towards them. This was a man that gave everything to light a lamp, a lamp that lit the way for much progress, but a progress that is not finished yet, so we carry on, under the glow of the light he and others along side him sparked.

Lamplighters VOL. III
The famous “earthrise” photo as our planet appeared over the surface of the moon from the vantage point of the Apollo 8 crew. I’ve always loved the unifying properties of this image. It magnifies the importance of life, of human life, as we see our planet without borders or the things that we let divide us. This preciousness of life also struck the crew of that mission, as they viewed all of humanity in one sphere, a lone vanguard in a sea of the unknown. We are capable of more, we can be more, we are more, but only together. Space is a challenging reminder of that.

Lamplighters VOL. II
Roosevelt & Churchill may have been two of the most important figures of the last 100 years. I could be speaking of course of the President and the Prime Minister, but I’m not, I’m referring to the wives of the two WWII leaders. Much notoriety is given to decision makers, but I believe not enough is given to wisdom lenders. In book after book, these two women are described as the sounding boards, the listeners, the wisdom lenders during one of the most tenuous times in history, and not only did they do their part, they did incalculably more. Their words, given in secret, changed the course of history. These are the hidden heroins of WWII.

Life may have tossed you in a tempest-ravaged sea, but take heart, your sail may be torn and your hull may be beaten, but you’re still afloat. Eventually rough seas calm and dark skies clear, you will make it through as long as you keep at the wheel, and when you get tired, let someone help steady the course with you.
