Nature

I find this tree that is located on the banks of the Mississippi and heavily eroded by the water quite beautiful. It reminds me of another tree which is the banner used by Annie of Little Rock. Both trees survive despite being buffeted by other elements of nature. Humans, too, are often buffeted by elements that we cannot control, and how we survive sometimes is a miracle of nature.

  8. I thought it interesting that the roots are harboring something tiny beginning to grow. In green.

  22. Yes, I'd like to be like this tree: strong, rooted, and emotionally resilient, that's the goal anyway.
