A Thought from Nature
My neighbor has bamboo plants growing around his pond; you know, the kind of tall rods people still use for fishing poles.
How can it bend in the wind or with a fish on a line and not break?
If you will look on the inside of the pole, it has banded, strong sectional parts, spaced separately but clinging to each other.
Sometimes you have to live life in well-defined compartments, clinging together in order to go with the flow.
