Everything in the universe is ephemeral, including the universe. But some things are more ephemeral than others. For humans, sadly, hope ranks among the most ephemeral. A few months ago, somebody had high hopes for this vacant building on 9th Street in San Francisco’s SOMA.
Today, perhaps, not so much.
But someone will come along, perhaps the same person, with new hopes for what might replace this burnt-out husk.
And hope will live anew.
