In light of "recent" events -- some of these events aren't recent -- I find myself really thinking hard about this one word - HOPE. It's a theme I, most times subconciously, grabble with in my work. I looked up the word and got countless definitions that amounted to basically the same thing... Hope is a kind of want.
Hope (click for dictionary definitions):
(I've selected a few to share below)
- a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
- to look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence.
- to cherish a desire with anticipation.
- to want and expect something to happen or be true.
How one holds on to hope in the face of adversity... loss, grief, poverty, illness, you name it, is a phenomenon that I believe cannot be fully described with words (and I love words); and though a picture is said to be worth a thousand of those, it too cannot fully express that human "thing" that allows one to hope against hope.
So, if you will, please join me in creating a collage in honor of that "thing" that allows us to hope.
I thank you, in advance, for sharing what hope means to you.
