My painting "Too
Much Time To Think" is a part of the Ponte Vedra Beaches' Spring Virtual Exhibit. I was inspired by a light keeper's musings about isolation.
When I first visited lighthouses, I envied the solitary life of the lighthouse keeper. A peaceful shore away from the hustle and bustle of life.
As we’ve all just learned, solitude has its ups and downs. One principal light keeper is quoted as saying, “ The trouble with life here is that we have too much time to think.”
Light keepers did not have any of our modern conveniences. I’ve often thought of technology as a distraction, but Covid19 has been turned that line of thinking upside down.
Artists like myself tend to be introspective, but sometimes we can over think things. I’m trying to strike a balance and find a purpose in solitude. I’m reading more, meditating, and finding inspiration to create and write. St. Joseph Point is one the two lighthouses finished during quarantine.Ccpvb.org
