One Word Project

Nicole Cherry
Class of 2015

The first half of the “word” connects to the raw, morphing quality of reality. Things will happen, things have happened, where I will and would have done anything possible to change the outcome but still what I wish to prevent will come to pass. And there are moments where all one can do is take up the past on one’s shoulders and endure. In a way this is what keeps me grounded, but it is also what keeps me not just moving, but living because with endurance come the hopes and visions inside of dreams that one can find way to merge into the impossible and find what was longed for at some point.
