The longer we live, it seems, the more we’re confronted with disappointment, persistently and convincingly, and hope starts to look just naïve and silly. We get disappointed in our ideals, in romance, in our careers, in people we trusted, in ourselves and we start talking in terms of sheer desperation. So what are we to do when all human hope has let us down? Well, ironically, that’s when we’re finally ready for the only real hope there is.
