Wednesday Vignette


“Ever seen a leaf – a leaf from a tree?”
“I saw one recently – a yellow one, a little green, wilted at the edges. Blown by the wind. When I was a little boy, I used to shut my eyes in winter and imagine a green leaf, with veins on it, and the sun shining …”
“What’s this — an allegory?”
“No; why? Not an allegory – a leaf, just a leaf. A leaf is good. Everything’s good.”
— Fyodor Dostoevsky in The Possessed
