• “Watching the Lanterns journey across the sea, I have come to realize how their journey is a metaphor of our own lives. Our spark of life is awakened in the spirit of love as loving hands set us free to find our way. Even though, we begin alone we are joined by other sparks of life, guiding each other through the night. Some for a moment while others for a lifetime. At the end of the journey, the Lanterns are once again welcomed back into the loving hands that had once let it go. Its flame put to sleep for a time until it is awakened once again.”
