leaves, leaves, and more leaves
it is the time of year for brightly colored leaves, which is just about the time i start having second thoughts about all that color. the orange and yellow leaves are ljke the popular girls at school–all showy flirtation, but not really interested in sticking around. these leaves however are the real deal. they’ll be here in january. maybe even in april until the new buds burst and push them to the ground. they’re like your first girlfriend in college–the one who understood you. the one who laughed at your stupid jokes.
