Alone at the sea’s edge stands the heroic cypress. Raked and battered by the constant wind and spray, it clings to its granite base with grit and endurance. Though leafless from its trials, this lone cypress still stands. I hope for the same persistence, beauty and grace amid adversity this tree has shown as I travel through my own life.
