Bending in the Wind
Although I grew up in the Chicago area, I lived in San Antonio for nearly fifteen years. Returning home to Chicago brought a fresh perspective and set of eyes, the ability to see old things in a new light.
I have probably seen prairie grass for most of my life without much consideration. Looking anew, I see stark beauty and winter strength. With ice crystals forming, the plant bends but refuses to break, a sure sign of incomparable resiliency.
