To hope is to gamble. It’s to bet on your futures, on your desires, on the possibility that an open heart and uncertainty is better than gloom and safety. To hope is dangerous, and yet it is the opposite of fear, for to live is to risk. 


~ Rebecca Solnit, Hope in the Dark

To hope is dangerous, indeed. And beautiful, necessary, everything.

May 2019 be a year that is the filled to overflowing with the “opposite of fear,” filled with more hope than imaginable in every conceivable way – for you, for me, for all of us.

May it be so.
