I came across this tree when I was exploring the Washington coast during a storm. The rain was pelting and the tree’s very ground had fallen out from beneath it, but there it stood. From any other angle it appeared to be a normal tree, but if you stood just right you could truly appreciate how hard it had to work just to stay alive. The human spirit, like all life, shares this resilience. This photo reminds me to always consider the aspects of life less easily seen.
