Adapting

Adapting

These ‘weeds’ live in a very harsh environment – on the beach where the wind constantly blows. Thursday it may have been blowing 70 kph or more. The sun bakes down, winter and summer, radiating intense energy. The temperature varies from -25C to +30C throughout the year.

Yet these ‘weeds’ will almost certainly revive, bloom, reseed. They will live, thrive, because they adapt. They live in this environment, they adapt to it. They remind me that life, living, is about adapting to, accepting unpleasant as well as pleasant situations.
