So it has been really really hot here. The city has been passing out water (with gas) on the streets. People are searching for shade wherever they can find it. I think yesterday was a record breaker. Yesterday I noticed three different plants in our yard. There is this plant near the back of our house…I’m not exactly sure what kind of plant it is because it is completely dead, dried up and withered in the baking sun. There is also a fern which is still alive, but the tips are completely brown, scorched by the high heat. There is also some sort of vine that grows on our fence. Though the heat has been incredible, this vine is thriving, growing, spreading, bearing fruit.
Which kind of person am I? Am I dying, surviving, or thriving? What is it that causes me to really live?
