We will not go quietly into the night We will not vanish without a fight!

Whenever I see a flower growing up through a small crack in the concrete I am filled with a moment of indescribable happiness. While all the ego driven insanity is taking place all around us, this small living thing is reaching for the light! It is being true to itself and doing what it was created to do. No apology, no philosophy, no long winded explanation. Just sitting there quietly seeking the sun.
The comedian George Carlin once described it as "fucking heroic". I think so. Against all odds, win or lose, it tries. In the final analysis, that is all any of us can do.
