The art of hope

When i hear the word "wall", i envision a window.
When i think path, i think walk
When i think about a challenge, i think  try

Imagination is the vessel that holds my hopes and gives shape to them.
It is the brush that paints my dreams, and the compass 
that guides me through uncharted terrain.

There is a world that we can see - right in front of us. And there is another world, 
within us,- a world of possibility. 

"You may say I'm a dreamer..." -  to that i say yes, I am. And I promise I'll do my very best. 

Still, round the corner there may wait, a new road or a secret gate.-JR Tolkien

You can't depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus. - Mark Twain

Work is love made visible. - Kahlil Gibran

You've brought quite a life force in through that gate, Amy—it's about the happiest gate I've ever seen. Inspired me to go looking for poetry about gates, but I was disappointed with how little of it there was, given the richness of the metaphor. Guess you'll have to keep shooting to pick up the slack!
