a lighthouse gone mad from loneliness

Passage of the Moment
And then she hears the sound of a helicopter, from somewhere behind her and, turning, sees the long white beam of light sweeping the dead ground as it comes, like a lighthouse gone mad from loneliness, and searching that barren ground as foolishly, as randomly, as any grieving heart ever has.
--William Gibson, "Pattern Recognition"

Dream of the Moment
I had a dream last night that I met Kirk, but his face was Patrick Fugit's from 'Almost Famous'. I was at some crafts festival in a cold state, and I had on a black beanie, (I don't even own one) and he just walked up and introduced himself with a big smile. It was so vivd.
