There Is Hope, But Only So Much Hope—Cards To Send

The painting in this post was completed by a young cancer patient at the M.D Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.

It is a Thanksgiving card. You can go to the M.D Anderson web site and buy this card and other things made by young people with cancer.

In this painting, I like the presence of some color on the leaves on the tree, and I like the red barn. I also like the bleakness of the scene. It is clearly a cold late autumn day.

The color offers some hope, but there is only so much hope.

I bought a pack of these cards at the M.D Anderson store here in Houston. This store is in the Uptown Plaza in the Galleria area.

I’ve decided to start writing some letters and cards to folks and I’m going to start with this illustration of a barn in autumn.

  1. hope is like stress its how you look at it and how you handle it. the worlds a mess but you can still be hopefull and there are so many good people that do great self sacraficing things. your hope must be realistic as well. there is no world peace, there is no end of war, rape, violence, there will always be the homeless the starving and the underdog. but as long as you keep a sense of self that is what will continue to give you hope. our actions and how we treat one another is the measure of us being human. we are not perfect.
