Meditation 5.7.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle

A pen and ink doodle mediation in oranges and brown and a blurb about survivor stories.
Dear Henry,

I am very drawn to survivor stories.

I always wonder what "thing" a person has that causes them to survive harrowing situations.

For example, today I learned about Florence Finch who survived as a POW during WWII and then lived until she was over 100 and while she is far from the only one who did survive the POW camps, it does make you wonder, what was it that enabled her to survive and others to perish.

We talk about determination and grit, but, I seriously think that there must be a fair amount of luck as well because I can't imagine that those who didn't make it was any less determined.

What do you think?

xoxo a.d.
