There’s something about life! We call it vibrance. We call it survival instinct. We call it spunk. No living thing is inclined to die quietly, so when life gets violent the living live violently. Whatever the hardship, it’s never the end. Even the Alamo was remembered. Life and death have much more work for us to do before they allow the transition.
Imagine yourself a tree so alive you’re on living fire, so hot from life that the strongest storm can’t get you wet. That’s an accurate picture. Storms can’t wipe out forests; they only water them and feed them.
