Strategies of hope


I don’t own a television anymore, but once I saw West Wing and heard one of the characters make a comment I never forgot.

Example of hopeless situation

Losing faith, losing hope and carrying on in spite of it reminds me of his reference to Han, the Korean philosophy: ‘A sadness so deep no tears will come. And yet still there’s hope.’ Suddenly life offers tiny flashes of opportunity, dawn touches our mind and everything is new when one least expects it.
