We’re all brought together by a path that can seem obvious at times and elusive at others. Separately, we can feel lost—hope seeming like nothing more than a dim light through a cracked door. Yet in the places of togetherness are drawn into the light in a swell of sorts, gathering us all up, pulling in with it all of those small glimmers of hope in one collective wave that becomes what feels like change, like growth, like vibrant life.
We invite you to read and share in the essays of hope, in shadow and light, in despair and glory, in trepidation and triumph. Help us usher in the new year by hashtagging #ourcollectivehope (and our usual #ourcollective #shuttersisters & #thecameramen too when you see fit). We also encourage you to share your hope, your heart for a future issue of X : Our Collective Offering. We look forward to hearing from you.
