Sunshine Paintings, 4 – Rebuilding Hope (Haiti)

The Haiku:
May you rebuild on
Hope’s strong foundation as you
Reach toward the sun.

The Thoughts:
Haiti’s people have faced, still face, a long, hard struggle.  Those who survive must, I think, be tempered into hard steel, full of determination, refusing to give up.  The earthquake that prompted this painting was only one more thing, one terrible thing, in a long list of disasters both man-made and natural.  And yet the people of Haiti carry on, and their artists keep creating amazing work…

(I think you can see that I both hope for the future and fear the impact of the past)
