Hopeful Summer Reading list
life. a beautiful adventure full of twists and turns. Where are we all headed? What is the pursuit worth?
Sitting in the Alley Cat Café in Fort Collins with my friend daniel, as he was planning a road trip home with a friend but canceling a ticket he gave the best advice, “Don’t ever buy a ticket home because you’ll never know when you will go home”. Live vivaciously with faith.
pain: draws us into a reality of the world. suffering brings us into awareness a personal crusade against the mundane: any career has the danger of monotonous. the challenge and creativity to get somewhere
To earn a photograph: there is a preciousness of a photograph
There are no shortcuts too joy in life, anything worth pursuing is going to require us to suffer just a little bit, that suffering adds value to your life and work, you give a piece of yourself and walk away with a sense of fulfillment /// joy in suffering

A poem. Hopeless
by Hope Curran
the boy with black hair
who never sees the sun
has left the house to go to subway.
dairy and wheat is all he will eat
as he walks slowly through the street
the weather is just how he likes it, gloomy and pale.
the bread on his sandwich is slightly stale
he lives alone, away and forlorn
never to speak aloud
the time goes by and he doesn’t know why
he’s here on this spinning sphere
all day long he longs for night
he tries to forget with all his might
that the world is made of light.
entangled in the strands of darkness
he finds no one in his likeness.
years of love forgotten
come knocking at his door
A tall and gangly girl
extending her hand with a smile sewn on
she says, “Hello, my name is Hope”
Shades of black
he thought could never turn back
turn to pastels and hues of spring

I’ve started taking around my camera and interviewing strangers with the question, “what is your definition of peace?”… getting some deep and thought out answers- as well as some fluff.

I love to travel, I love to help others, how can I “give my spot away” to locals in the places I go? I don’t inend on being the hero, through art how can I give ownership to other artists in need?
