"Cussing the weather is mighty poor farming."
~ African American Proverb ~
A butterfly bush that grows 10 feet tall in Santa Fe, New Mexico
Grows 5 feet tall in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania:
Shorter growing season- less sun.
But in the Pocono Mountains, because of so much delicious rain,
A pine tree grows 100 feet tall,
While in Santa Fe, it's a shrubby bush.
And we are like that.
Some of us are more vital in the heat, and some in the cold,
Some in the mountains, and some by the beach.
Are we a tumbleweed, or dune grass?
The knowing is inside each one.
It's up to us to answer the invitation.
I don't pretend to be something other than I am.
