Strange hope

“Hope as I am using the term refers to commitment to the strangeness of the future — a future that is uncertain, fragile, carefully negotiated, and often wrenched, strained and disfigured through suffering, yet it is situated in the narrow space of transcendence, like the element of surprise in the narrative, the imagined possibility that brings resolution and redemption to the tragic and ironic, only to be upended and returned again to the struggle. ~ Walter Earl Fluker, The ground has shifted

Hope…how do you use the term?
