a very strange year

a very strange year

autumn 2021 is undoubtedly the strangest autumn we’ve had since i began STILL ten years ago. while my neighbor’s maple tree changed two weeks ago with strange muted and pale leaves in shrimp and bisque, mine is just dropping its leaves now with these veined, and highly saturated, yellows and greens. they don’t even look like the same species. i imagine that in the gaussian curve of normal distribution of all the possible ways maple leaves can change color in the fall, what we have had this year are examples from the two tails of the curve. pardon the brief detour into engineer geek-speak, and mild environmental despair.
