Hope is the thing with feathers – By Emily Dickinson

Rather than let the freezing cold keep you hidden away and hibernating, the winter provides an ample of activities to stay active and engaged. Here in Bannerman Park we have close to 100 meters of well kept ice open to the public anytime of the day or evening. Parents love to bring their children here to skate, and couples hand in hand go round & round falling more in love with one another. There’s a canteen that serves hot chocolate with outdoor tables & chairs to rest up. All in all it’s a great place for family fun.

My main intention for visiting the park on this occasion was to record a poem by Emily Dickinson. The background provided just the right amount of flair to compliment my recitation. As for the poem itself, well, it can be shared in just about any context, but especially during a long cold winter. While you watch the video consider all the metaphors used to convey the spirit of hope. Let the words permeate the entirety of your being, giving strength to your bones and warmth to your limbs.

Love & light,
