Although grace is free, hope recently cost me $8 on Etsy, the website where people sell their handiwork.
For $8 I bought a wire bracelet that forms the word “hope,” which I’ve been wearing all week.
Lately, hope has been my thing. I was talking with a tattoo artist for a story I’m working on and told him if I ever got a tattoo it would be the word hope in simple script, lower-case lettering, written very small, with a period at the end. (hope.)
