You know that feeling when time flies while also creeping by at a snail’s pace? That’s been my week. I swear, it’s been the longest decade to ever fly by. Anyway, I know I owe you a proper blog entry, but instead, you’re getting a photo.
It’s been rainy and windy here this week, and I say that to sort of maybe explain the below. I came across this one day late this week, smack dab in the middle of the walk leading to my office’s door.
Now, I know that this interesting sight was caused by a little whirlwind — the leaves spinning around and landing in a perfect circle because of a small pocket of turbulence where the air currents were forming a little eddy. But the dreamer in me prefers to think of fairies or wind sprites playing in the early morning mist… though what they were doing in a business park, I have no idea.
It was a bit sad that upon heading home that day, the leaves were back to their boring positions spread slapdash across the walk. But there for a moment, Mother Nature’s artistry sure made a dull day brighter.
Mother Nature, what a beauty.
Personally, I think you got some very tiny, lazy, not too bright aliens living in your neighborhood. They heard “crop circles,” thought it was “crap circles,” figured decomposing leaves were close enough for government work, and they’re outta there for the weekend!
What lovely magic
Happily no one told you it was the result of a prosaic barrel that had been standing there and was judt removed before you arrived. I prefer the fairies.
