The wind was blowing the other day, and I noticed a leaf being carried along. It blew one way, then another.

I watched as it went back and forth, tumbling over its stem, then over its tips. I sat for quite a while observing this leaf.

At first I was amused by the back-and-forth action, and thought about how the wind changed direction, causing the leaf to change with it. I thought about how the leaf had no say in where it wanted to go.
