It's an extremely windy day. Leaves are flying everywhere, garbage cans are overturned, and the wind brings the spilled trash to life. While driving I see a magazine rolling end over end, slowly making its way across the road. Near the middle of the road it hesitates, so I slow down to avoid running it over. It flops to the right once, pauses again, and then continues rolling to the other side of the road. Exhausted, it stops for rest at the curb, heaving up and down pathetically, and is soon overtaken by a Pepsi cup and cereal box. These new arrivals gather around the magazine, and soon the magazine is up and on the move again, with the Pepsi cup and cereal box running along with it side by side.

It is a touching display of camaraderie, and I am
moved to tears.
