POTD: Act of Valor #5

POTD: Act of Valor #5 Anaconda, Montana 2012

A tree grows in Brooklyn and a dandelion in Anaconda. I’ve never actually read the novel A Tree Grows in Brooklyn but from reading summaries, it seems that the City of Brooklyn and the metaphorical Tree of Life (now considered and invasive species which inhabits vacant lots in New York City) that is central to the novel, might just have well been replaced by the town of Anaconda and it’s dandelion–although it makes for a less romantic literary vision. The book’s theme regarding the importance of tenacity and the balancing of idealism and pragmatism in dealing with tough economic times would seem applicable to Anaconda as well.
