Anna Zahm As many other individuals have experienced at this time, I've been unable to meet with one of my most important creative communities, which for me is a community choir. At a time when we could all use more connection and engagement, we are instead left parched for both. Messages of Hope drew me in with the opportunity it afforded to create and to be a part of something larger than myself again. I appreciate the freedom Cabinet gave us in making our shrines whatever we wanted them to become--everyone starting from the same blank slate, hoping that their unique offering of Hope might resonate with those that pause to look. For me, Hope can be both foraged and forged. It is a gift we can offer to others, and a choice we can make for ourselves. It is a peering in, a looking up, a reaching out, a turning towards, instead of away. It is a renewable spark of energy in the face of dwindling light. Hope is never one thing.
