My emblem for lightness is a falling leaf.

Growing up in Atlanta, my favorite season was fall. I loved the changing leaves. As the leaves would fall from the trees my sister and I would run and try to catch the leaves as they unpredictably fell to the ground.

The most obvious reason I chose the falling leaf is because it is light. But, also I am using this emblem because of the E-literature piece. It is called Tailspin. The story talks about a Grandfather’s scary story of when his place went into a tailspin during a war. The falling leaf falls as if it is in a tail spin, is light.

Finally is in motion as it falls. This emblem perfectly depicts time and motion, Calvino’s feelings on lightness, and finally my E-literature piece.
