WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : FINAL CHOICE : HOPE

HOPE.

056

I am doing a kind of cheat this week inasmuch as I have chosen a classic family snapshot pose. In a time when I have been struggling with Hope for a bit, the topic stomped me somewhat. I was going to post my passionfruit vine photograph because that vine has got me through the Summer. Then I spotted all the floral and vegetable posts by Bloggers and thought I would look elsewhere. A few minutes back, I thought I would go for the sense of enduring hope in old buildings and trees and then I came to this simple picture, taken today with the floods passing. Oh God, I thought – we are beginning to really smile again. The Cheery Redhead found the place where Fairies live hidden deep in the big old tree out the back of the carpark in our hometown.  Maybe one of my cornier entries but Hope in the Past of the big old tree and in the Present with my own daughter looking so happy and in the Future with the Little Ones .  I have other hopes for other Loved Ones and I am keeping them private for now.

I left yesterday blank. NO reason except to leave it blank. Today , I’m taking a hunt for a HOPE picture  and a look around the Blogs for other Hopeful Photographers. I was intending to limit myself to 3 choices only but I might just break that small rule as well. Seems to be 2012 for me in the first 30 days.

Making plans and changing them.

Having intentions and not carrying them out.

Adopting one attitude and then fostering an entirely different one.

Yesterday’s  CAINER : When is good news not good news? When you have resigned yourself to the idea that it will never come and have thus made a series of alternate plans. When there is no longer room in your life for something wonderful because the space has now been filled up with something second rate. What’s happening in your life now is really rather excellent. If it does not match your idea of what ought to be happening, you just need to change your idea about what ought to be happening! Expect the best. In your heart of hearts, you know this is what you deserve.

Yes. that’s my passionfruit vine bearing fruit. Its brought me a lot of sub-tropical joy this Summer and now there is actually fruit on it. Mind you, some critter is biting the fruit  clear off before I get to it but I don’t mind too much. It symbolises hope at a time that is appearing to dash rather a lot of what I thought were intelligent and perfectly reasonable hopes for my life.

In the end, there is the Vine and Me.

Now for my look around the Blogs. Will choose 3 extra specials and maybe be a little tougher than usual in  choosing the rest of my favourites.

I have sneaked in this second major image because once I saw how many of us went for plants for the HOPE theme, I figured I had best look further for what HOPE means to me.
