I read once that to be happy one needs three things: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. It has always been my instinct to hope, perhaps because I am interested in so many things and can always find something to do. I've never understood people who said they were bored. My head is usually filled with impulses and visions of things I want to create. My husband often asks what I'm thinking, and I have to admit that, frequently, my response is that I'm not thinking at all, I'm imagining. This journal page is my response to the words of Van Gogh "The best way to know God is to love many things." My Jardin d'Espair is a list of the things I love, not all, mind you; there wasn't enough room for everything, silly. Today my wish for you is that you have something to do, something to love and something to hope for.
"Once you choose hope, anything's possible." Christopher Reeve
