Author: Hope Koppelman

I'm a process writer. I write for the journey and discovery. I write for one reason: TRUTH. My life is devoted to finding it, speaking it & living it.

When we look back at our lives,
at all we have been through,
we want to be able to say,
I took everything life gave me,
even the darkest days,
and made something beautiful.

The greatest things in life
seem impossible to understand,
and they are
through our human capacity,
but art gives us the tools
to explore them deeper.

Art explores
into the unknown,
into the unseen,
into the mystery,
and it brings back
fragments
of the divine.

Writing is an unfolding, it opens the world up to us,
like a flower, petal by petal, slowly revealing
the center of the thing we are writing about—the real heart of it.
This unfolding is how we make sense of the world we live in.
It’s how we learn from it. It’s how we bear witness to its beauty.
