It is finally starting to feel like the Fall Season here in the hill country of Austin. Around here, every season but summer is a rumor until it happens, and once we believe the rumor, the season is already gone. Like rumors of the fall, we also cherish our sweaters, because we don’t get to wear them as often as they should be worn. For this very reason, I’ve fallen into this old habit of wearing a few favorite sweaters quite frequently during the short, chilly season here in central Texas.
My wife makes it a point get me a new sweater every year for Christmas, in hopes that I will fall out of this old habit. Up until this year, the new sweater is usually left in the closet, next to last year’s sweater, or the one from the year before.
