Hope has been called many things, but no one has ever called it stationary.
There’s a theme of journey that shadows all of our hopes. And as it moves so must we continually move towards it.
Yet we often couple our words of ‘I hope’ with a stationary follow through – i.e. no movement towards anything that can or may fulfill our hopes and dreams.
Emily Dickenson beautifully captured a thought on hope with saying, “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul. And sings the tune without words, and never stops at all.”
So you say, with all this talk about movement, where is all this headed?
Here: Hope does not respect kicked up feet and finds crossed fingers to be quite unhelpful.
