Focus on Life - Hope






If you feel you know how to get what you want out of life, and you have that desire to make that happen, then you have hope. Jennifer Cheavens

This weeks Focus on Life blog post is hope. Hope comes in many forms. Sometimes it's hope that tomorrow will be better, that this trouble will pass, hope for a smile or a lightening of the load.

Hope for me happens most mornings when I open my kiln and see what the previous days work brought. I love opening my kiln in the mornings, usually I'm still in my pj's often with a cup of tea in hand. Some days are better than others but there is always something that makes me smile in my kiln.

I like your post this week. I just bought a kiln and I'm excited to get started using it.

I can imagine all the beauties that come out of your kiln as a result of hope.

A beautiful statement on the nature of your art. Where you have to look away to see the result.

What a great photo! When I was in high school art class I sometime got to help unload the kiln. It was fun to open the lid and peek inside.

I hope everyday that I'll have the stamina to create something new when I get home from work all day.

The daily anticipation must be something to experience. *smile* I hope today's is rewarded.
