i am thinking about this, wondering, and really, i think Gaia does not know hope, but simply knows and holds Life of any form, knows and holds Life in whatever form it may assume. May NEED to assume. i realize that when i use the word Hope, i am signaling something that i hold dear, that i have come into this life to know as Life. But that may change, in response to so many factors and may become something i cannot recognize. And writing that, i think yes, maybe, but there would be the Felt Sense of what is familiar in it, what is kin. the most basic Thing of Life and Love of Life and Just Going. ?????????
