There are two ways to prevail.
Like the tree, you can go with the adversity. Bend with it. Be flexible in the face of it. Surrender to it.
Or, like the crow, you can lean into it. Streamline yourself against it. Endure it. Stand your ground in spite of it.
Both are wise. Both prevail.
Even against the most severe of prevailing winds.
