Metaphors for hope and happiness

"Hope," 5 x 7 #watercolor card
Hope and happiness in this world of woe? There are metaphors everywhere, as people seek peace, and follow traditions.
Christmas decorations are appearing as November winds down, hoping for happiness in reunions and giving, warmth in a time of cold.
Gates hold special attraction to me, beckoning for a trek down a path, or toward some once-visited place in memory, hope for a  journey yet to come.
The lights and decorations and gates in our lives bespeak our need for hope and happiness as we travel through another year.
