Look Closely

Make a careful examination of this picture. This tree grows on top of a rock pillar on the shore of Lake Superior in the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Through wind and water erosion, all of the surrounding rock has disappeared, leaving this tree on top. And just to the left are several sizable roots that stretch to a place where the tree can receive nourishment. This popular attraction on Lake Superior may even be in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" for all I know. A seed took root a long time ago in far different circumstances and grew into a tree that is dependent upon its lifeline. How long will it survive this way?

I think it's kind of a fun image that reveals that we do not live alone. We need to be connected to thrive.
