This was nice

I stopped in the middle of the sidewalk when I saw this tree the other day.  And not because it was particularly beautiful or because I felt depressed to see it dying.   It stopped me because none of the other trees around it had lost their leaves.  And I found it oddly, dramatically inspiring.  Like this tree wasn’t afraid to let it go and start the slow process of restarting.  It felt more like a hopeful step than a dying one.

Of course, it could have just been a gust of wind.  But either way, it was nice.
