Make like a tree

I had a meeting in another building today and had to traverse part of the NerdCo campus. Across the street, I watched a guy walking parallel to me: a grown man, coffee in one hand, NerdCo ID clipped to his hip pocket. Deliberately and with visible pleasure, he was scuffling along through the ankle-deep leaves that covered his portion of the sidewalk. Shooff, shooff--kicking up great swirls of yellow and orange around himself, 1:00 on a brilliant October afternoon.
