The end is also a beginning

The woods are damp, the atmosphere feels like a wet rag is perpetually being wrung out - tiny droplets of moisture pervade every square inch of every leaf, twig and branch. The droplets linger, drip, form minute pools, seep into the earth. The damp serves to break down all organic matter in the woods creating a medium in which new life will begin. Winter will be followed by Spring and the start of new chances, new opportunities, new challenges. The foundation, preparation, anticipation are happening now. A reminder that nothing occurs by chance, at random, or just because. Every story has a start, middle and an end.

This leaf is disappearing literally, before our eyes. Bit by bit it is rejoining the earth. Same time, next year.
