Guitar #56

Some people view receiving hospice care as “giving up hope”.  The background of this guitar begins with the solemn color of black, a lack of hope, and slowly brightens to the color purple, finding peace, faith and hope.  Hope is not lost when admitted to hospice, it is redefined.  Hope can be redirected into mending and restoring relationships, spending quality time with loved ones, finding peace and comfort, turning to religious faith, settling financial affairs and any other thing that the person doesn’t want to leave unfinished.  The color purple is a calming color, allowing for introspection and focused insight.  Like the color purple, the iris is a symbol of faith and hope.
