Ready to Rise


Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.  - Ralph Waldo Emerson

The rain has beaten down this poor leaf.

But, wait!
Do you see it?

The stem is fighting the pressure to be flattened.
In it's struggle it's readying itself to fly when the right opportunity comes along.

I so relate to this.
Do you?

  3. I like also that the leaf lies alone, away from all of the other leaves.
