When hope is the only thing left ...

by Yvette Depaepe 
in the name of all Editors
Published the 30st of October 2020

This short article is a little out of the box, please forgive me for that.
I really want to hearten you up in these difficult times and believe me, it bucks me up to write it … because just like everybody else, I have moments of weakness.

Today, the world is facing the coronavirus crisis, a pandemic that has changed life for millions of people. In times like these, HOPE  can be a powerful source of reassurance. Many are locked at home, others are working to help and prevent the virus, but all need the reassurance and the hope that “we shall overcome this.”

Hope keeps us going.
Hope is a renewable option...
If you run out of it at the end of the day, you get to start over in the morning.

Therefore, this video titled 'Quarantine through Art'.
Let's go for the last sentence all together.
'Don't count the days, make the days counting to defeat the virus'



Though times NEVER last.
Don't ever stop hoping!

Remember that your 'photographic' Art also can help to cherish your hope for better times and to share it through your images!

Thank you dear Yvette for your great and important message... at this moment it is the hope that gives us the strength to move forward. Just think that in the past without all the knowledge and possibilities that we have, in 1600 with the plague and at the beginning of the last century with the Spanish, the epidemics were defeated... and for us it will be the same... we must only have a lot of patience and prudence, but we will get out... Congratulations on the wonderful choice of images and video. I wish you well and be careful...
Thank you so much for your uplifting message, dear Fabiola. Let's look forward to better times and stay safe all together. Cheers, Yvette

Thank you for this timely reminder, Yvette. Between the covid situation worldwide, and the political anxiety here at home in the U.S. this week, it feels an extremely pessimistic time. I need to rediscover my hope!
The rest of the world is also holding it's breath, Christopher! Too much darkness and yes, we have ALL to rediscover hope! It feels good that this little contribution works uplifting. Keep it up and stay safe, my friend!
