A couple of years ago, I went outside after dark to look at the stars in ways we couldn’t while back in Minnesota. I stepped from the porch, with the lights of course, and then I tripped on the water-hose. Down I went, taking my wife and daughter with me. Truth be known — they kinda cushioned my fall. However, I still managed to take a chunk out of my big toe.

The lesson I learned is that little light above the porch is there to light the path below so we can see our feet and not trip. Maybe that’s why someone — at least far wiser than me — invented things like nightlights, porch lights, sidewalk lights and other such gadgets that light the paths beneath of feet.
