Somethings are beyond our control and all we can do is make the most of the situation under foot. This tree was unlucky enough to grow on a rock above the salty seas. Starved for nutrients, and always thirsty, the roots plumbed the depths of the cracks seeking sustenance. It built a home on this cliff. Until one day the rock broke, pried apart by the growing roots, and fell into the sea. Once again the tree is beset with challenges, and once again it refuses to surrender. The tree outlived the rock it grew on, half its roots now hang dry, but the other half struggle on, growing deeper, growing stronger, because there is no other option. The tree lives on.
