Hang in there

Charles County, Maryland  

On a recent trip down the Potomac River, we stopped and walked along the shore on the Maryland side. In this area bluffs, some twenty or twenty-five feet high, line the river. Storms and high water erode the base of these bluffs, undermining trees that grow on the edge until they finally lose their footing and fall into the river.

This tree will no doubt eventually lose its battle with the changing shoreline, but for now it is still alive and green,  fighting the elements that erode its very foundation as it clings to the bank above the river. There's a lesson somewhere in that.
