On my way home from the bank this afternoon, there was so much wind that many of the leaves shaken loose from trees readying for fall were flying along Kingston Pike. Between the rain and leaves, it was a little hard to see but that didn't matter.
I didn't think I'd like the gray and rain so much being a child of the African sun, yet once I got home and parked, I saw the leaves of the big oak outside my apartment gently and furiously falling down. I stood under the big tree and let all the leaves fall around me. What an amazing feeling leaves raining down! Some hit me on my shoulder and others rested at my feet. I walked around to see the colors of the other plants and just walked on a bed of leaves.
Have you ever done it? Just standing still seeing and feeling leaves swirl around you? I totally recommend it. And no, I'm not crazy.
Also on my way home, I heard on the radio the new song for a film on Tupac Shakur called "Resurrection," I think. Anyhow, the song has been mixed by Eminem and has some 2Pac, some Biggie and an altered song from the '70s (Dying to live, or living to die), and is so so awesome. Eminem did a kickass job. I first heard it on MTV, and continually played it while working a few nights ago from the movie web site. All those beats sounds terrific. Want a listen? It should be on the web site. The song is embedded in Flash, so you may need to have Flash Player 7 installed.
