"Bloom where you're planted," we're told.
That is not always an easy task--we need the right resources, which are so rarely shared equally. What if we're the seed scattered on the hardened path?
The planting piece--beyond our control sometimes.
See the plant growing out of this hole in a rock? It's tenacious in that barren place, or perhaps humus was already in that hole, helping a plant to get established. Still, the plant's unlikely spot reminds us that nature can pretty much handle everything we throw at it.
Whether or not it pleases us, though--that is another question entirely.
