In his challenge this week Jake writes that hope is the last thing a person feels before they are defeated.  I  totally disagree.   Hope is what leads from a feeling of defeat to one where I can move to make positive changes in my life.

Jake sees hope as an emotional state.  I see hope more as a type of energy.   For me hope has the power to  changes a negative, defeatist and closed state of mind into one that allows room for new, healing and expansive energy to emerge.

Without hope I tie myself in knots   DSCF9786

everywhere I turn there is another wall imprisoning me in my fears 


With hope there is always a light at the end of the tunnel

  1. Yes, I agree with you, and you have illustrated it beautifully with these words and images.I love that Portugese quote above as well.

  2. I agree. Hope is what keeps me moving forward. Without it, I would have given up on many things a long time ago. Beautiful marriage between pictures and words.
