Dried leaves and fish scatter readily



“Do not think of your faults, still less of others’ faults; look for what is good and strong, and try to imitate it. Your faults will drop off, like dead leaves, when their time comes.” — John Ruskin quotes 

Have you ever noticed the similarity between dried leaves on the ground and a school of fish? I started making this comparison at 8:35 a.m. this morning when the sound of a motorized blower made itself known outside my bedroom window. I watched as the groundskeeper tried to round-up the fallen leaves and direct them to a waiting garbage bin. The leaves scattered energetically, regrouped in another area and waited patiently for the unwelcome intruder to attack them again. Schools of fish scatter readily when they feel threatened and also regroup. They are driven by instinct and the will to survive. The leaves are an easier prey.— gc
