Found word: “Hope”

“Language as a found object” -Susan Sontag

Right there on the shelf sitting with the leaning stripes and folded solids, stitched between the graphic tees and dark denim, the word “hope” spelled soundly or soundless in black background and white text, in block letters and in a size 3T. “Hope” was an unexpected opening, an abstract idea I could concretely wonder about, a welcome distraction while shopping, a word to jot down in my journal, an unfolding notion on a cotton tee, instantly inspiring (and on sale).

Words: Find them, collect them, share them, they belong to all of us.
