When you feel like there's absolutely no way forward, when you feel like you don't have the right scenario or the right set of circumstances, when you feel ill-equipped or lacking in resources or connections, when you're down on your luck, remember this little plant. Growing in about a thimble full of dirt that blew into the top piece of this pipe, which is about 1" in diameter. It found a way. You can too.
Nuff said. Nature always has a metaphor for us to follow, if we are paying attention.
