A LIGHTHOUSE.




A LIGHTHOUSE.



A lighthouse is a tower, building, or other type of structure designed to emit light from a system of lamps and lenses or, in older times, from a fire, and used as an aid to navigation for pilots at sea or on inland waterways. Lighthouses are used to mark dangerous coastlines, hazardous shoals and reefs, and safe entries to harbors, and can also assist in aerial navigation. Once widely used, the number of operational lighthouses has declined due to the expense of maintenance and replacement by modern navigational aids.


The sea and lighthouses have always caught my attention. They hold fascinating mysteries which engulf tales inside their fading walls facing the majestic sea. Precious ancient gemstones, old lighthouses are slowly fading away in time. Poet Celia Thaxter lived as a child in the 19th Century in White Island with her father who was a lighthouse keeper. She lived in the Isle of Shoals, 10 miles off the New Hampshire coast in New England, USA. This brick-and-stone lighthouse on White Island was badly battered in storms during the 20th Century. The old lighthouse there held several mystery stories that the poet told in her journals ("Anatomy of an Ax Murder") and her Poetry (1873).


Today, the mystery still unrevealed. Writer A. Shreve's recent best-selling novel, "The Weight of Water" based on a true story of the murders of two young girls from Norway, shows the grip of the Smuttynose Story that still hold America tightly even 125 years later...


Dear Readers,


Have you read the Novel?? Have you watched the Movie??


Well, I got my personal oppinion about this story. I think the girl from Norway who was the only survivor was the responsible for the murders of her sister and sister-in-law. She had a reason to kill. She blamed the stranger for her actions, I think. Everybody believed her story. Justice was not done well at that time. A better investigation should have solved the puzzle. There were only 3 ladies at that time at night in an uninhabited island. Two of them died. Only one survived. No one else was there to testify. Guess what??...

Who doesn't love lighthouses? A murder in a lighthouse does indeed sound spooky.
