Addendum, 11/29/2016

When I was taking a walk and saw the jubilee of leaves mounting and swirling in a vortex of cold autumn air, it cheered me out of a funk that had settled upon my psyche.

Two other connections presented themselves, too.  First, DUST OF SNOW by Robert Frost, for which I’ve also written a little tune, came to mind. Joying in the experience of a heavy moment made lighter by a delightful chance happening in nature.  I also think about that wonderful line (which has always caught my attention) from A VISIT FROM ST NICHOLAS, “As leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, / When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky.”
