Like An Old Friend

I've got an old t-shirt that I've had for years. It's the one I alway reach for after a long hard day at work. I got it at the Frank Brown Songwriter Festival at Gulf Shores in 2001. The festival was an extraordinary weekend and they gave us t-shirts for performing at the festival. Whenever I put on the shirt, I always think of good music, excellent food, and and a beautiful sunset.
I don't think it has any type of magical properties, but it seems more comfortable than all my other shirts.
It's like the taste of comfort food when the world seems to be crumbling around you. When life is nipping at my heels and I am strung tighter than a piano wire, give me fried chicken, mashed potatoes and green beans and I feel like I can make it through.
Today was a long and stressful day and putting on the t-shirt tonight was like spending time with an old friend.

  1. Years back when I visited a college roommate's family in Turner's Falls, Oklahoma, we ate sowbelly, black-eyed peas and hushpuppies and I can still taste them. What a delicious meal!
