Hope


















This mural was just completed
a few blocks from my house
at the organization where my husband works
where there is now a whole intersection
of abandoned buildings
being made whole
made to live in
by women overcoming addiction

on this crazy avenue
there is now room to pause
and glance into the sun
shining through the trees.

Absolute perfection.

The poem, the painting and a new post from you.

That's excellent, Emily. I love the "coming soon" sign in the corner. Feels like change is just around the corner.

Just beautiful. You always remind me of the other side to life - and the raw beauty that can still be found in the sadness and despair. Thank you Emily.

i think if i saw thus on the street I'd have to pause and I'd have to breath. But just seeing it on your site is good enough for this morning. Lovely, thank you.
