HOW REFRESHING it was to look up and see rust coloured autumn leaves fluttering over the roof recently.
Although it's easy to feel low when mired in politics, a cotton candy pink sky put current events into broader perspective while a leaf, stuck on a branch, appeared ready to fly when the morning light shone through it.
Meanwhile, seemingly overnight, a plant gone to seed had burst into stars.
I don't think it's quite what Michelle Obama had in mind when she said, "When they go low, we go high." But it is uplifting to look beyond the noisy chatter into what nature does continuously without much fanfare every single day.
