Hey JT, i believe hope does only one thing well: generating disillusions. One should favor dignity over hope, i think to myself, so many a time. But yet, the darn thing is still stuck in the jar of my Pandorra. I hear its laments and every time I fall pray to their poetry and emotional opulence I break my neck under the weight of the next unfulfilled salvation.
I say there is dignity in waiting still, carrying on your pristine gifts into your fifth decade! Have my kudos :)
And, not least, thank you for reading, we’ll keep in touch,
