When the root is deep, there is no reason to fear the wind.

In times of adversity and change, we really discover who we are and what we’re made of, says Howard Schultz and he is so right. Very often, it is not adversity itself, but how we react to adversity that gives direction to our life and creates our life’s story, so how we shape ourselves internally is very important. Tough times comes to all of us and just as they have the power to break us, they also have the power to make us, provided we let it— the choice is ours.

This is a grand old tree that we spotted during one of our game drives with Schotia Safaris, somewhere near Port Elizabeth in South Africa. Though it is typical of the vegetation in that area, I have no idea about its’ name. If anybody helps me identify this tree, I’d be very grateful.
