I had completely different intentions for this post. Yes, I wanted to share with you the amazing Hope Outdoor Gallery in Austin, Texas. But after a long day of work and a glass
or two of wine, I have realized there isn't much to say. The message of the gallery is hope, and that is exactly what we all need right now.
The word Hope means different things to people. For this run down block in downtown Austin, hope meant getting a second chance at a life. A failed land development, Hope Outdoor Gallery was created in order to give the people of Austin a place to truly express themselves. The gallery is full of messages of love, and yes even some messages of hate. But together, this worn down concrete is a piece of beautiful art.
I don't know about you, but I often find myself feeling exhausted and trapped in this thing called life. Life is always going to throw you curveballs, but the way you handle these obstacles will determine your level of happiness. Hope and love are the two things that make me look forward to the future. It just took a little trip to Austin, Texas to make me realize it once again.
