I posted the pic on Instagram, using the hashtag #overcomingadversity. Then I thought to myself... how much fun would it be if people all over creation used this hashtag during spring to keep on keeping on with the inspiration? Flowers do this all the time - they grow in unlikely places, seeming to thrive on practically nothing. What if a whole slew of us spent the springtime traipsing around, documenting these flora triumphs with social media?! What if we ended up making friends with each other?! What if in the course of our traipsing we got exercise and some vitamin D?! WHAT IF, y'all?!?!?
So, do you want to join me? I hope so. Grab your phone, and go for a walk. If you see a plant defying some odds, share it widely with #overcomingadversity (and sharing it on the Good & Gracious Facebook page is cool too). Let's create some synergy between nature and technology, and see what good comes of it!
