Hope in the Darkness

Hope in the Darkness

Here's a directive dedicated to the people of Haiti:
Using dark gray construction paper, and your choice of oil pastels; chalk pasters or even metallic crayons, draw an image of what hope looks like to you. Recall a time in your life when you experienced difficult events and circumstances. In the midst of your troubles, what gave you hope? What helped you believe in a positive outcome? Use any image that comes to you to make a drawing. Images inspired by spiritual traditions are welcome. However you choose to use the materials is fine, as there is no one right or wrong way to complete the drawing. Then after you are finished, maybe quite a while after, journal a bit, writing whatever comes to mind, being real kind to yourself as you do.


With love, Gioia
