I was running so hard that my insides felt like a bubble machine! “Oh, how I dislike cities”, I screamed silently. Slowing down a bit, a flash of yellow caught my eye. It was unbelievable to me that I was seeing sunflowers growing out of the sidewalk in a space between the walkway and a brick wall.
I asked myself how that was even possible rather impatiently. By now I had stopped completely and was transfixed by this sight. Beauty in the midst of chaos and disconnection. Memories of my home in Nebraska flooded my brain as I realized that those sunflowers and I had been somehow transplanted to this cold, lonely place.
A smile began to form on my lips as I realized that these blooms had not only adapted and survived, they were thriving. Beautiful and confident. Could I do the same?
