There is such a thing as hope.
I’ve been getting up earlier, marvelling how it changes the shape of my days. You can only make and keep a promise to yourself, when there is hope.
Hope beyond ordinary jobs, swallowing up your life; hope above chores, hope beneath sadness, hope despite strain.
I hope for many things. I hope to finish Girlfag (threads of inspiration are being pulled as we speak). I hope to get a better job, or, failing that, start to earn more money in the current one. I hope I can fashion out a career that is suited to me. I hope my musical project, due to kick off on Thursday, will be a rousing success. i hope for beauty, I hope for love. I have both.
I hope I can walk around and inspire people. I need to inspire myself. Can’t offer things you don’t have.
