Something to Think About

This summer, while we were on our trip, I saw this thing.
This thing:

lights

It’s called Urban Light, and is composed of 202 restored lamp posts from the 1920s and 1930s. It marks the entrance to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
It is only, you know, minorly cool and fascinating.
Here is the thing for you to think about:
A lot of lamp posts in one place is pretty cool.

But it’s a waste. Useless against all that darkness out there. As long as the light is all in one spot, there will always be dark areas.

Lamp posts are much more effective and useful when they are spread out.


Another thing:
A lamp post that is on its own can see how effective it is. It’s obvious. Other people can single it out. It might feel alone, but it is in the center of its own light and warmth, and is so much more valuable that way.
