On Desire, Expectations and Hope.

On Desire, Expectations and Hope My first impressions thinking about these 3 words this morning are: • Desire is Life force, the Lust for Life. It brings evolutionary momentum. Desire can also become an addiction to the familiar old or to the exciting new. Deeming desire a 'bad' thing potentially kills the Lust for Life.
