Hi PQ,Life is hard enough with hope, it's almost unbearable without it. Hope is a wonderful thing.
Of course not...I'm right there with you PQ. I have been thinking a lot about your entries around happiness, revolution one that you wrote about and submitted to the carnival a while back...To find this, and I've been feeling like hope is something I(we) could use a lot more of, and are seeking to build it daily, we need lots of it, and it's definitely not naive, it's a survival characteristic. hope you're well,
i loved what fab said. she is brilliant!your entry reminded me of "hope in the dark" by rebecca solnit. i think you'll like it...
you know, my dear sister,unfortunately i am at a point of my life where i'm asking myself the same questions... and currently i lean towards, 'yes, it is vain to hope'. i'm just so tired of being a naive optimist, of trusting the wrong people and wrong situations, and getting burnt, burnt, burnt, betrayed and burnt... and not seeing any improvement or good in the world in general.but hopefully this phase will pass. for you, too.love and i missed ya,g.
it is never, ever wrong.signed,hope's #1 fan.
personally, i think it's not wrong to have hope. but for me the key is: is it hope with expectations that are dashed and wear us down again and again, OR is it a hope without expectations? without a timeline? and if we don't know when our hopes will be fulfilled, what kind of responsibility does that ask of us right here and now to each other? this is something the philosopher Derrida has helped me think about.love,p10
reading all your comments made me smile big. yeah, i'm hope's #1 fan too. despite everything.
parami10, as always you get me thinking about things in different ways...much thoughts around this. will articulate them...eventually...
