And Also the Trees...

Twice this week, I was witness to the hasty amputation of Gingko limbs.  Standing in the middle of the street, to the west was still autumn,  bright yellow leaves an exclamation point to a bright beautiful day.  To the east was winter, gnarled limbs splayed like contorted fingers, reaching up as if screaming,  "Why!?"

On the turntable:  Mannheim Steamroller, "Christmas"

On the reel table:  "Bicycle Thieves"  (De Sica, 1947)
