Picture of the day

Even when it's not entirely clear, and everything looks a little fuzzy around the edges, hope is always visible.

At first, I wasn't happy with this picture when I got home tonight and downloaded it off of my camera. It's a picture of a luminaria that was set up in the bleachers at the local high school where they were hosting the local Race for the Cure, and I swung through the parking lot to get a better look at it on my way home from L-----'s graduation open house. However, after I thought about it awhile, the idea took shape that it wasn't such a bad picture after all, and that like hope itself, it doesn't always have to be sharp and in focus, but just existing, for you to know that it's there.
