She had just made her daily round of campus and was walking back from this Project on campus created by James Pleasants (2020). She noted how remarkable it was and how it brings her joy each day.

As you can see from these photos, life finds a way! Take a look at these flowers that sprung from gravel and are blooming in preparation for the warm summer ahead of us. Let's take inspiration from them. Thrive under pressure! When the situation around us seems too difficult and we don't feel like we're in the right place, we need to be like these flowers and do our thing no matter what! Thanks for tuning in on this Friday Drop and we're looking forward to seeing what you submit over the weekend!
