In the fall, if at all
It's been a weird sort of autumn. After an October which tied for the third coldest in recorded history of course, in Oklahoma, that means "since 1889" November has been relatively normal, at least by the standards of Soonerland, but the winds have been shifting back and forth so fast that an actual golden-brown leaf, its cycle finally complete, will stay on the tree for a matter of seconds before it vectors into your neighbor's yard. For people who love autumn foliage, this generates mixed emotions at best.
In the unlikely event that I do write something brilliant, I may actually have to start tooting my own horn.
