A lighthouse standing erect on the cliff is a boundary marker, to a sailor it is both a warning and a comfort. Marking the boundary between land and sea it promises a safe return to terra firma but at the same time warns against the dangers of this turbulent zone and the threat of death and disaster in the transition from one medium to another. Change is always a dangerous process beset with hesitancies and reversals.
