Life in the most tenuous of places

The other day I was in an office tower forty stories above the streets of Chicago. Looking across the way toward another office tower I noticed that a seedling had taken root against the side of a building high above the city streets. No doubt its life would be treacherous at best however there it was holding on with utter tenacity against all odds.
