From the "Feel Good" file
I can't remember if I've already linked to Knitta, a.k.a. Knitta Please, a crew of ten chicks who cozy up to the coldest of urban elements by "tagging" light poles, street lamps and more with colorful bits of hand knits.
It's so Amelie and somehow very hope-inducing.
Speaking of hope, the late peace activist William Sloane Coffin had some great thoughts on the matter:
"I think that hope reflects the state of our soul rather than the circumstances that surround our lives. So hope is not the equivalent of optimism. So I’m always hopeful. Hope is about keeping the faith despite the evidence, so that the evidence has a chance of changing."
"Hope arouses, as nothing else can arouse, a passion for the possible."
