where there is life there is hope

 'dum vita est spes est (where there is life there is hope)'

An amazing man with very severe ME for decades now, recently wrote to me 'All is not bleak though, ...' 'Where there is life there is hope.'  

This blew me away and the quote (taken from the latin 'dum vita est spes est') really connected with me.  

I haven't been well enough to do any big painting or major artwork, but the quote inspired me to sit up to do these two quick (2 minute) pastel drawings, to bring the Latin phrase to life. 

I like to contemplate life and hope as the new year approaches.  May 2014 and beyond be filled with peace, love, joy, hope and as good health as possible.
