Madonna del "Magnificat" (detail)

A Single Leaf

This morning I had a coffee with my neighbor and friend Margreet. "This is what life is about, is not it", she said, showing me a single colored leaf. 

I could not agree more. And although I really meant it that a marvelous colored leaf is what life is about, but my thoughts went immediately to my mail program IncrediMail that has a letter as a background for mails -which I use often right now- with these kind of leaves on it.

I felt so prosaic, thinking of a computer thing instead of nature or the parodox of the beauty that lies within decay.
