Glimmer of Hope by Davenit Glimmer of Hope by Davenit
Ever had someone break up with you but you felt there was still a chance they'd come back? I have...

This is my take on it. They never do, at least not completely.

Enjoy.

Dave

Most have been hard to do this one. Those things burn out if they don't have the glass covering.

I just read the description...

So, I have to say thank you because I've been faced with exactly that wish for about two years now and it's a hard thing to shake.

Taking this a step further...

It would have been *really* cool of the broken/hollow portions were shaped like the continents of the world.

Woah this is really inspirational! It makes me want to draw the earth as a light bulb with the water as the glass and the land as broken glass with light inside just slightly lit! Amazing job! :clap: thanks for the inspiration!

I would have to politely disagree with that...sometimes they do come back and it's better than you ever dreamed...for both of you.

:XD:

I hadn't checked out your stuff for awhile, Dave...busy, busy, busy, but I must say...amazing as usual!

it depends on how you act towards them...for everyone dats my friend, I give them 100% loyalty and i tell then the truth in EVERY situation...this is what they can not get anywhere else...so when we quarrel and they leave me, they ALWAYS come back...I've had someone come back to me after 8 years of quarrel and grudges and she basically said it was difficult to replace my friendship...it depends on how you treat people...:D

They keep stringing that small glimmer of hope in front of you, dangelling it slightly out of your reach.

Nice idea. First I thought, it is a bulb with a world map and the glimmer is into Africa. :D

Did you just chip the paint off or actually brake the bulb? If you did brake the bulb how did you keep it lit?

It looked like a globe to me as well.

I love it. So very meaningful indeed.
