another exhausting day at the office leaves me beat and low-spirited. my eyes are burning and my hand is sore from me leaning on the horn because of the unforgiving ride home; my mentality is damaged but my expression is restrained. i past this yellow tree line. my expression becomes freed from the rat race of life. my eyes clear. i pull over and grabbed my tool. as i walk to the line, i am visually and intellectually blown away. a sea of yellow leaves as far as the eye can see. they poured down on me like a quite storm. i take a deep breath and shoot.
