Elusive 'Autumn'

Nick Tosches has a brilliant piece in Vanity Fair about a Microsoft Windows desktop background image:

I sit on the couch and stare at that rustic path and those big old maple trees. By now I know the name of this particular wallpaper or background or whatever it is: Autumn. Moving to the desk and gazing more closely, I see a vague, dark, summoning something at the end of the path. A cabin? A covered bridge? A barn? I want to be there, for real, on that path, under those maples, moving slowly toward that dark, summoning something. [Via|Link]
