Where Hope Begins by Mindy Rhiger, on Hope is a Girl Selling Fruit by Amrita Das.

“The beginning of hope is an ending. Maybe it’s the ending of accepting the world as it is. Maybe it’s the ending of a bad habit.  Whatever ends when hope begins, it’s a shift that isn’t always conscious. Sometimes it takes time and effort to sort through the feelings that come with change. For some of us, that means writing. For others, it means creating art to explore the full scope of the nuances of the issues in front of them.”
