To endure is to stand the test of time, adversity, or both.
Endurance requires strength… But what is strength?
In today’s photo, I captured (or at least attempted to capture) two very different forms of strength and endurance.
- Rocks are hard. While nature and erosion will eventually break them down, on a human timescale, they are steady and unchanging. The same rock that we climbed on as a child will look pretty much the same in our elderly years. Rocks clearly endure.
- Flowers are fragile. Most will not withstand even a single season. During the course of a human lifetime, we will see literally thousands (if not millions) of flowers come and go. Yet despite the fragility of a single plant, the annual cycle goes on and the species endures.
