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

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing

  1. You reckon. My leaves go wherever they want, and then come back again. They drive me nuts.
