1. steadfastness in doing something despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
There is a tree I see while driving back and forth from the Ville to the 80’s House that inspires the same thought in my head every single time. Of course, I see a LOT of trees. But this one stands out, you guys! I have no clue what caused its oddity — it could have been trimmed at a particular height and made a spectacular adjustment… or it could’ve been hit by lightning or fell victim to some other act of nature — one can only guess. What I DO know is this ugly tree screams at me every time I lay eyes on it. “PERSEVERANCE!”
