as seen: after the fall

At my last job, I had a clear view of a ginkgo tree from my desk. One Fall day, the tree lost all of it's vibrant leaves in one dramatic session, which lasted through the afternoon. Of course, the beauty of this annual act is lost if you're not in the right place at the right time. But the trees also leave a concise and soft bed of yellow leaves after the fall.

Hey Kevin,

I was there today. The ginko leaves were all soaked and on the ground. They were really stinky - smelled like vomit to be honest. Any symbolism?
