So here I was walking merrily to work when what should catch my eye but this leaf that had fallen to the ground. Instinctively I picked it up and took it to work.
It was still quite green, and if it weren’t for the dropping temps I’m sure it would still have lasted a couple weeks more on the branch. But what really caught my attention when I saw it was its size.
This thing was big!
The entire time it was on my desk I would glance at it and wonder. Made me think about existential circle of life stuff and how all of us are destined to meet the grim leafer at some point. For my sake I can only hope it’s the same as this leaf. Quiet and dignified.
