A Leaf in the Wind

I was visiting the charming town of Hendersonville, North Carolina, it was early fall and the leaves had just started to drop from the trees that lined the sidewalks. I paused for a moment to decide which storefront to stop in. As I did so, the wind picked up and a single leaf caught my eye as it was lifted off the sidewalk. It was one of those surreal moments when everything around you is silenced and you are alone with your thoughts and Spirit. I watched as the wind gently tossed the leaf through the air, moving from one side of the road to the other, looking for its destination to set it back down.

You are Pure Potential
