Steve Maraboli states that “Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.” One of the major topics at the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) #ASLA2013 annual conference is resiliency, which begins this morning in Boston. This topic was announced in October in remembrance of the one year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy but with this latest devastation hitting the Philippines, resiliency is on the forefront.

While the industry’s focus on resiliency is timely, these subjects have been at the forefront of the landscape architecture world for quite some time. It was a little over a week ago that one of my posts, Tuesday’s L.A. Lesson spoke about changes with the remapping of flood zones. So be ready for a 'to be continued' segment on many of these major points.

And if anything teaches resiliency, it’s the understanding of Mother Nature and what she has in store for us. Being prepared is what makes the difference. As Maraboli reminds us, ‘Getting strong and more resilient’ keeps us moving forward. And though you may be tired of what I deemed the #Bostonstrong Rose, it’s amazing how resilient this one Rose has been, even when the weather has dipped well below its tolerance level.

Look forward to seeing everyone at the conference.
