When contemplating a new bra for the next Way to Womens' Wellness exhibit, I thought of the Emily Dickinson poem, "Hope is the Thing with Feathers" and started to work on it. But then I was shopping for something else in the crafty section of Joann's and ran across these colorful feathers (which I already had at home by the way). I had already had begun another idea based on this theme but when I saw these feathers, I had another thought. The first concept involved very light, fairy-like colors with translucent, ethereal fabrics. But when I thought about it, if you are in a fight for your life or if you are a researcher working on a cure for cancer, hope is charged with fire, energy and color and takes on a different persona of determination and drive. This bra symbolized the fiery, energize side of hope.
