This is a drawing that I made in my diary two weeks ago. It is a self portrait, where I’m saying “as long as there is love, there is hope”. Don’t you agree? There is so much happening in the world, to the world, that sometimes you just want to take cover under your blanket and hide away. Cry your eyes out with sorrow and scream out loud because life hurts so much. Love can suddenly end, people die around us and we are all going towards our own end, each day. But there is something so beautiful about love. Maybe I’m in love with love itself, but I know I enjoy both reciving and giving. And I have so much to give, and that always gives me hope.
At Studio Friday today the theme is hope. When I feel sad I sometimes go through my photos, recent and past ones, and view my life in still pictures. When I see the places I’ve been, the people I know and love, it always gives me such joy, and hope that even though I feel sad now I will be happy again because the images are a proof of that. The ups and downs of life is constant, but the photography is almost always of joyful times! I love that!
Other things that gives me joy and hope is: P – my fianc?, my lovely family, my friends, comments in my blog or personal e-mails from strangers all over the world, sunshine, children, flowers, natures ability to take care of itself when allowed to, the joy of reading and collecting words…
And the joy of seeing beauty in small things like new socks from mom and a self portrait that makes me smile!
