have you ever driven the "17 mile" in monterey california?
it is drool worthy. below is the "lone cypress".
one of california.s oldest prevailing trees to endure the harsh winds that blow through the monterey peninsula...it.s stood for over 250 years.
because of it.s symbol of fortitude it has become the trade mark for
do you ever wonder where fortitude is born? what gives someone the courage and strength, the "firmness of spirit" to do good or carry on,
despite the obstacles and discouragements that inevitably cross their path?
what do you do when trials arise or the winds seem brash and endless?
just a thought that ran through my mind as i took this photo of the
" lone cypress"
