I NEVER paint lighthouses, ever. But for some reason I had a hankering to do a sketch of this one. I had an extremely fun time climbing around on the rocks here with my two grandsons, Jack and Anders, a few weeks ago, and so did they. Maybe that's it - maybe I'm painting a happy memory.

Painting this got me thinking about the slow breakdown of the Earth's crust from one solid orb to boulders, from boulders to rocks, from rocks to stones, from stones to pebbles and from pebbles to sand. Is this what Einstein was thinking about when he predicted the universe was expanding - that each stage of what we think is the Earth's crust's breaking down is in actuality a slow expansion of solid matter to a Higgs boson?
I suppose we need to get used to the idea that we're always on our way to becoming Higgs bosons. I guess there are a lot worse things we could becoming.
