Heriot Toun in summer

Words for Autumn 2021


Your opponents would love you to believe
that it's hopeless,
that you have no power,
that you have no reason to act,
that you can't win.
Hope is a gift you don't have to surrender, a power that you don't have to throw away.


Rebecca Solnit, from Hope in the Dark
