When you wish upon a ......leaf?

What is this life if, full of care
We have no time to stand and stare
- William Henry Davies

Today was a glorious autumnal day. I was chomping at the bit to go for my run.
However I was soon stopped in my tracks, not by tiredness or injury. Rather the tree line road was so beautiful that I kept stopping to take photos of it. 
A sudden burst of wind caused a flurry of leaves to come tumbling down. Out of the back of my mind came a childhood memory. I recall hearing that if you catch a falling leaf before it hits the ground then you will get a wish.
And so if anyone was on the Riverdale road today at around 11 am, that is the reason you would have seen me chasing around the place like a demented banshee!

Now, what shall I wish for.......
