Hope 2017 - 3D printed Z-ABS, Z-ULTRAT, stainless steel saw blade, glass mason jar, 3 x 3 x 3'
I have HOPE!!! One of our most important human traits is having the ability to hope. To be able to think ahead in an optimistic manner about our future, both earthly and spiritual, is to many of us the main essence that keeps up striving. Throughout our lives our hope is challenged, shaken, and sometimes even exhausted. I chose to make this piece because my hope has been repeatedly bombarded and defied this year. Humanity is at a crossroads and in my opinion hope’s driving force is the key to overcome most obstacles. If hope is not kept alive there is no light and darkness will take over. However, hope is not enough being aware of the origin of our tribulations is imperative. Most of the origins of the difficulties in our modern world are based on the lack of empathy for fellow humans, because of greed, because of racism, hate, weapons, disease, poverty, climate change and the denial of it. Furthermore, I believe it is imperative to be informed of the causes of evil because having an informed grasp of reality will enable us to have real hope, not a false distorted one.

Inktober Day 15; "Mysterious". Pandora. Crafted from the earth by Hermes and moulded by the gods, Pandora was the first mortal women, and Zeus' revenge on mortal kind for the actions of Prometheus. She was gifted a vessel which contained all the horrors of the world; strife, illness, toil and more. We all know this to be Pandora's Box, but I read a while ago it was a mistranslation, and in fact it was a jar that Zeus had trapped all these miseries into. However, along with all these evils, at the very bottom of the jar, was hope (Elpis). #inktober2017#inktoberday15#mysterious#pandora#pandorasbox#pandorasjar#greekmythology
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21.... I can see it in my garden. Fibonacci found a rhythm, a pattern. Perhaps this is a doorway to the universe. Beyond our five senses. Our sixth sense. Or third eye. Energy finds balance, strength and growth to this sequence. Spirals like riptides, wind and water currents. Its essential not to fight the tides forever. Rather, feel it and ride. And fight for your life. Open your third eye. Accept your limitations until you outgrow them and learn to fly. Don't become adulterated by the evil in the world. Sometimes it can't be changed. Sometimes it shouldn't be changed. Roll with the tides. My best advice to a kid is don't be afraid to fall, do it with all your heart!

Telling my students in class tonight about Pandora's jar:
ME: So Zeus put all of the miseries of humanity into the jar: war, disease, poverty-
4th GRADE STUDENT: Puberty...
ME: (Looks at student with awe and admiration)
STUDENT: Cause puberty is pretty much the worst thing ever.
I tell ya, this kid may be that drop of hope that was in the jar. In case you're keeping track, this is the same student who for Halloween went as the vampire/cat/with an axe in case there are psycho clowns. #mystudentsrock#teacherlife#pandorasjar#pandorasbox
#PandorasBox is #PandorasJar
#PandorasBox is an artifact in #GreekMythology , taken from the myth of Pandora's creation in #Hesiod 's #WorksAndDays
The "box" was actually a large jar, #pithos , given to Pandora #allgifted , #allgiving which contained all the evils of the world
Pandora opens a jar containing death and many other evils which were released into the world
She hastened to close the container, but the whole contents had escaped except for one thing that lay at the bottom – #Elpis - usually translated #hope , though it could also mean #expectation
Today the phrase #ToOpenPandorasBox means to perform an action that may seem small or innocent, but that turns out to have severely detrimental and far-reaching consequences
The mistranslation of pithos is usually attributed to the 16th century humanist #ErasmusOfRotterdam who translated Hesiod's tale of Pandora into Latin
Erasmus rendered pithos as the Greek #pyxis , meaning "box"
The phrase "Pandora's box" has endured ever since
This misconception was further reinforced by #DanteGabrielRossetti 's painting Pandora
I never thought I'd love and be loved so unconditionally as I am today. I fall more in love each day to you. You have been such a solid rock for me in times of bewilderment and pain. In that darkness, you are like the hope flying violently from Pandora's jar. You remind me to suspend my emotional self and to search for the patience and compassion I have buried deep within me. If I were looking into the Mirror of Erised at Hogwarts, you would be smiling back at me and at my side. I really love you to Pluto and back Jimmy. #unconditionallove#solidfoundation#hope#pandorasjar#emotions#patience#compassion#mirroroferised#hogwarts#toplutoandback
