This is the state my son’s mother is from and when we lived there, I don’t know if I ever fell more in love with an area than I did with this one. Oddly enough, it is also the most challenging location I have ever lived in. I will not say it was all magical, because it was also where I lost nearly everything I thought was important. My skewed views coming from central Texas had no real chance of surviving in this area without help. Still, the lighthouse imagery is meant to represent my son, and while he was born in Texas, he lived in Rhode Island for a good chunk of his life. Neither of us have plans to head back for more than a short visit, but the impact it had on me will stay forever.
