Yellow Maple

(Toledo, OH) The effect of the sun illuminating the maple tree in my backyard was almost phosphorescent in the afternoon sun today. I took a break from dissertation writing to stretch my legs and breathe in some warm October air, and the leaves of this tree were positively radiant with color.

No offense to those who make a living trying to convince people to buy a life insurance policy, but I would hate to be cooped up in an office on a day like today. With temperatures in the 60s and at least a few minutes of sunshine, I could almost forget that my self-imposed dissertation deadline is almost upon me.

Almost.
