Hold fast to the mountain, take root in a broken-up bluff, grow stronger after tribulations, and withstand the buffering wind from all directions.
Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.
But I was also doing odd jobs around Portland, like spreading gravel and transplanting bamboo trees.
Bamboo is not a weed, it's a flowering plant. Bamboo is a magnificent plant.
