I’m not a science nerd and I’ve never really been a nature lover. Yet suddenly, I am fascinated by the natural world. Today it’s the autumn leaves—they are changing so slowly this year. I have my theories on why: It’s been quite dry for the last many weeks. It’s a much hotter September-October than I remember for a long time. But looking around, I do wonder—what’s going on in that tree? What’s the story behind the leaves?
Growing up in suburbia, living in the city, I don’t crave nature, but now I do appreciate it as never before.
