Blossom This Way
Those bits of tree and shrub in the fence remind me of how tenacious life can be - flexing and bending against obstacles in order to continue growing, even if that growth is awkward or inelegant. Even if that obstacle must be incorporated into the very fiber of its own existence. Hmmmm.
I've thought a lot about this lately. Many of my mental musings and feelings are also inelegant - railing against the unfairness of life and the sheer magnitude of the obstacles. But that fence is teaching me something. My job isn't to wait for the perfect circumstances to grow and stretch and blossom. It is to blossom this way, right here, in the midst of the chain link fence. Firmly rooted, we can blossom wherever we are.
