Up at the cottage when the residents say we’re ‘Hopeless’ they are not referring to the state of affairs in the world, their own state of mind or any situation for that matter. Hopeless at Big Sand Bay means that we are fogged in and can’t see Hope Island which sits just north of us.
When the fog breaks up and the sun reappears Hope Island returns to us. In life hope is always there. Sometimes hope is all we have and even in our darkest days we sometimes have to push through the darkness to find it but when we do we can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
A very good friend of mine who lives alone has started a project that involves all her friends. She recently asked us to all create ornaments with words of inspiration written on them that she could hang on her white Christmas tree. She still has the white lights on it and she thought it was the perfect back drop for her tree of Hope and Peace and Love.
Her original idea was to cover it with ornaments in the shape of moons, suns and stars. We were all given carte blanche and the only caveat was that they not be too big and that there were personal messages written on them to send out to the world.
My whole family is getting involved but I think I’m the first to complete the task. I decided to show you my work in the form of a video with music in the background. I learned something new today as I have never done anything like this. Now I’m hoping I’m able to send it out to you.
