There is always hope.

"I certainly have not the talent which some people possess," said Darcy, "of conversing easily with those I have never seen before." (Jane Austen)

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost." (J.R.R. Tolkien)

"Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon." (A.A. Milne)

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)

If you're here looking for something to read, some of my favorites are "Ten Wishes--A Poem", "Light", and "A Possibility". :)

Dispirited Fog

PROMPT: Paint Swatch

    Dispirited fog is the color of everything during finals week when you know you're moving in six--five--four days. It is the color of sleep-deprivation mingled with mourning, of the shaky smile you plaster across your face like frosting hiding a cake that didn't turn out right. It is the distant look in your eyes when the world becomes a dream and you can't quite focus on anything, and when you're so lost in thought that you can't find your way back.
