A fb friend posted a query yesterday: what gives you hope? A good question for days like this which have me worried. As I started making my list (waking up in the morning, nature, making things, growing things, humans opting to be kind and look out for one another….) I was reminded how active, and generous, being hopeful is. You make it, and give it, as much as receive it. So the question may be, how do you make hope?
