sheds his skin

  1. Annie Dillard wrote a hilarious paragraph about how wasteful it is for trees to shed their leaves. She wonders, wouldn’t it have been tidier and less extravagant for them to just hold on to them from year to year? We could argue that, but in the meantime, there’s the beauty of the trees’ transition to enjoy.
