This fall, while walking, I have seen several lone leaves lying on the sidewalk. As their beauty captured me, I wished to capture them.
Leaves are such an apt metaphor for the stages of life. From bud to green to blaze of glory to falling down to turning brown to fading away.
We are only here for a little while. All the more reason to live each day with kindness and compassion.
I offer these photos as reminders of the way of the leaf.
