Silent In Its Hope


Photo taken by contributor Kyle Anderson, a man from Saskatchewan, Canada. Kyle has struggled with an anxiety disorder for most of his life. After a traumatic accident ended his career in health care, his life became unmanageable and he sought out the help that he so desperately needed. As a longtime photographer, when he found Broken Light Collective in an article it instantly resonated. He now runs a photography program at his local mental health association. He has since become a certified mental health peer specialist and advocate. He also writes local editorial and uses his platform to help erase the stigma of mental illness in his community.

About this photo: “As rain falls on rolling fields, the car wizzes past as we drive through this wide open landscape. Seeds planted, perhaps one of the greatest metaphors of hope, wait in the ground to germinate and create new life. The farmer, whose livelihood is based on hope, waits patiently for what tomorrow may bring. We keep driving, forever moving. The rains pass and the earth waits, silent in its hope.”

    Hope is the thing with feathers –
    That perches in the soul –
    And sings the tune without the words –
    And never stops – at all

    Hope can be as fragmented as the clouds, yet it can yield eternal comfort.
