twenty-two: the green light in the great gatsby.

brooklyn bridge. march 2011.

The green light at the end of the dock in The Great Gatsby represents hope and renewal. It’s everything even if we don’t realize it. It’s more than Daisy Buchanan who never loved him enough anyway. It’s all encompassing and a fact within everyone; it’s what gets most people out of bed in the morning; it’s the promise of possibility.

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther. . . . And then one fine morning— ” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
