Yoga Tree in Winter

In my book, trees are the ultimate survivalists, as they can, in some cases, stand across the centuries, despite all that weather can throw at them: wind, cold, heat, drought…

The Yoga Tree is a shining example of this endurance, who has inspired me over the years; she may not be centuries old, but she has not only survived the harsh New England climatic extremes, but also wrapped herself around the oil tank that was stacked up right next to her.  She shows her adaptation to the prevailing winds and all that she had to conquer, in a proud stance, as she reaches up to the sky, almost in defiance to what may be thrown at her.

Do you have a survivor in Nature that inspires you?
