Window Vine

I found this window, at the back of a warehouse, along the waterfront. Water and weeds make their way. There is just no way around it. It's a given. They go where they want to go with us or without. Some things in life are just beyond our control. I used to get frustrated when I couldn't get my way. I'd resign myself to just 'living with it'. Now, I'm a bit more positive. I make do with what I have. Although water and weeds still can drive me crazy.

  1. Despite the fact that the window is old and worn out, there's a feeling of strength about it...it's been around a long time! The vines look like they need some help from rain and sunshine to survive.

  6. Tis true, they see their own course. I recall a saying, 'Lord, give me the tenacity and determination of a weed.'

  10. Good attitude. There is an awful lot more powerful out there than we are. As John Lennon instructed us, let it be.

  11. It is sad to see the state of disrepair that this window has reached, when it takes so little to keep it clean enough that the weeds don't get a foothold.
