Discarded leaf

I used to have several things in my life that I thought were very important. I spent a lot of time doing them. They were good things; they were productive things. But now I no longer do them. I have found other worthwhile things to occupy my time and attention. The remnants of those activities now take up space in my basement and garage.

This leaf once played an important role in the life of the oak tree from which it came. It now lies where it fell, and the snow of time has fallen around it. Another leaf will take its place in a couple of months.

Life goes on.
