Everyone has a favorite article of clothing. You know that one piece that you take everywhere with you regardless of the dirt or stains they contain; or, it’s that one shirt your mom constantly tells you to replace?
I have a favorite shirt, just like everyone else. When I put my obnoxiously bright yellow quarter zip on, a feeling of nostalgia consumes me. Red dirt stains bring me back to backpacking through Capitol Reef, and technical canyoneering in Zion. I think of evenings star gazing from the comfort of my sleeping bag, or sitting in the dirt with my friends deliriously laughing at dinner antics after a long day of trekking. You can say my shirt and I have a romantic relationship (haha) we’ve gone everywhere together. Every time I put on my favorite shirt, I relive these moments that are so dear to me.
It’s interesting how a sensation of a simple fabric can trigger such nostalgia.
It's a tattered shirt now, and its yellow glory is slightly dimmed by the accumulation of experiences we’ve had together. Although beaten up, I wear it at every opportunity, in Steamboat I feel like its a badge of honor... “Yeah, this is my adventure shirt,” it really speaks for itself.
