Word of the Day: Hope

Today's word is HOPE! I am full of it at this point in my life even after everything that I have been through in this life so far. What does hope mean to me? Sit back and I'll tell you, no definitions today just me. 

I still a degree to complete, one that would require taking public speaking. I intend to put that particular class off for a few semesters because I have a tendency to quit at that point. The class is stressful for me on a number of levels. I have hope that I will make it through that particular class the next time I take it.

I have hope that we are going to be just fine on our own. I believe that I'll fit back in those clothes that I could wear at seventeen. Well, I'll come close, and that's good enough. I'll settle for within a size or two that once made me feel fat. 

I have hope that this year will go smoothly for us. I know what I want to accomplish this year, and I am off to a good start.

Until next time I hope that you still have yours and live your dreams to the fullest.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
