Erect comfrey and collage

Before it flops

I had not intended to post my “Eeyore mood” to gather praise or encouragement but it sure was nice. I have the best cyber-friends! Thank you one and all.

As far as I can tell, we are all of us tipsy with the tug-of-war between hope and despair.

I’ll leave it there for today.

And look at this! Again with the acknowledgement!

    Oh yes, that’s a great way to describe it—tipsy between hope and despair!
    I may have my head in the compost pile, but I lean towards Hope…it’s easier on the heart.

      Most people I know are leaning toward hope, but maybe not consistently. Sometimes I think what a lot of us are experiencing is not so much despair as a kind of disorientation — not knowing how to hold it all.

    It’s kind of what grace was speaking about in her latest blog post – that aimless feeling…

    I, for one, totally give myself permission to feel aimless, to feel that not every moment needs to be filled with the doing of things, the hard thinking, the constant need to feel that I am fighting the just cause because there is such a thing as the well almost getting dry.

    These past few years, my well has had times when there has just been a trickle but that trickle is always called hope…I accept that there will be days, when the trickle wants to become a puddle and then a river but it’s just not in me at the moment so for now, hope is a trickle and that is the way it goes for now…

      Pendulums have a reliable rhythm though? But maybe they’re sort of stuck — tracing the same arc, back and forth, back and forth.
