Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.
-Samuel Beckett

Those words are what this is all about. They’re harsh and abrupt. They’re real and honest. And they’re full of hope.

Hope isn’t an easy thing. It’s hard work. Hope first requires the recognition that the way things are currently just might stink before being able to see the possibility of something better being met with down the road. Hope means trying after failing. It means failing again, but in that failure something has changed. Hope isn’t what makes things instantly all better; it’s more gradual than that. And it isn’t about perfection. But it is the catalyst for the effort to try again and again and again and again…

That’s what this is all about: putting in the hopeful effort so that in the midst of failure progress can be seen.
