starting the new year with hope

Hope begins in the dark, 
the stubborn hope that if you just show up 
and try to do the right thing, 
the dawn will come. 
You wait and watch and work; you don't give up.
-Anne Lamott

and here's a link to an old and favorite post.


  1. I am determined to make this not just a year of showing up, but of sticking around! Happy New Year!

  2. Great quote. Happy New Year Karen!

  3. and my favorite:

    "hope is the thing with feathers
    that perches in the soul
    and sings the tunewithout the words
    and never stops at all" emily dickenson
