Even the Evergreens . . . (revised, Feb. 1)

You know that truism about how some trees break in the wind and others bend? And from that idea you're supposed to understand something enduring about love and relationships, about how being flexible and bending in the wind lets you bounce back, strong and healthy, from the storms of life? These evergreen photos point to an alternate conclusion: that being flexible sometimes leaves you bedraggled. Other times, it leaves you pulled up by the roots and dying on the ground.

Just a little thought to cheer you in case you're feeling bedraggled yourself.
