Falling leave

To combat the onslaught of autumn melancholy i translated a piece by my dad about the homesickness he felt around this time of year. He put it beautifully: "What we achieve will forever lag behind what we desire. Looking back from the point where we are to where we started from, all we see is an insurmountable distance. Homesickness to me seems an attempt to measure that distance, to gauge its haziness."
