I wanted to say a big thank you to all the bloggers who’ve looked at my blog during its first year. I’m grateful for you stopping by and hope you’ve got something out of it. Thank you for your messages of support and interest. Like all of you, there is something liberating about speaking into the midst of humanity even if like Amy Adams in the film ‘Julia and Julia’, I don’t always know who I am speaking to.
So, here are 3 paintings on the theme of hope for 2013. The first is a favourite of mine – ‘Hope’ by G F Watts:
The second is totally appropriate for our time – ‘Hands of Hope’ by Anthony Hodge:
The third shows hope through the eyes of nature – ‘Petals of Hope’ by Thomas Kinkade:
All three I think are beautiful. I also have a quote which I found in the newsletter of a small charity doing wonderful work – Hands Around the World – www.hatw.org.uk
If you think you’re too small to be effective, you’ve obviously never been in bed with a mosquito.
Lots of small acts make a big difference. One person can’t change the world but one person can change the world for one person, or one animal.
