These two Bradford pear trees in my front yard have left me thinking - what tenacity. 
No matter they should have lost their leaves at least a month ago, 
no matter that we've had below freezing temperatures 
and strong winds - and even some snow.
 Is there something I need to learn from this little bit of nature. 
Should I keep writing? 
Should I keep making stuff? Practice kindness. Practice tenacity. 
 It's an interesting word, one to keep.
 What does tenacious mean to you?

  1. i must say - i would pay close attention to what those trees are telling you. i am a big believer in paying attention and trusting the hints the universe gives. tenacious: to say to the world, or to yourself (you can be quiet about it), i am not giving up, i am doing it, and then, of course, it is the doing of it. whatever it may be.
