Storied hope

There’s a nice reflection by TNC just up, on hope in writing. I think what he says makes a lot of sense. I think good art is deeply connected to the real world, and where we have false understandings, it creates hollow and shallow art.

Having said which, I think there’s something deep in the human psyche that needs a sense of agency. Not a sense that things will be better, I think, but that they can be. I think it can be hard to function without a sense that positive change is possible. But that’s just my intuitive sense; the full topic can wait for another day.
