Be Radical, Be Hopeful!

I've probably said this before, I mean, I'm sure I have, but I don't feel the need to go searching for supporting blog posts - it's sort of a radical choice to be hopeful in this cultural moment in our lives.

It is so easy to be cynical, sarcastic. I suppose it's also a strategy to shield yourself from caring, from being hurt. But it's the more fully human choice to be hopeful, knowing that there is much pain, misery, sadness and loss in store for all of us.

So yes, hopeful, with eyes and hearts wide open. Damn the torpedoes. You may be considered naive. But that's no great shakes. Better to live with a heartfelt openness. Any day. Every day.
