“leaves glow under a haze of sunlight, and hang still on a windless day”
-Bremer Acosta, Cosmos in a Tree
I went into the mountains yesterday and it was so surprising how many of the leaves were still holding on to the trees even though there had been several snowfalls. It was wonderful to see. See the gold light shine through the last remaining orange leaves. To see them doing their best to hold on. The golden light and the spark of color brought pure joy to my soul.
