What I'm reading
I'm reading Overstory by Richard Powers.
I'm at the part where they are trying to save giant Redwood trees.
Now the trees are threatened again, and the enemy is fire and #climatechange.
But firefighters are trying to save these living gems. They have wrapped the base of the world’s largest tree in a fire-resistant blanket as they tried to save a famous grove of gigantic old-growth sequoias from wildfires burning in California’s rugged Sequoia national park.

The Longevity of Stuff
I looked at my minion tee shirt today and noticed it said 2013.
That makes it 8 years old. I can still remember when I bought it; we were looking for curtains at JC Penney's (which I think we didn't buy). The tee shirts were hanging facing the isle and caught my eye. Since I loved minions, the rest is history.
It's not by any means my oldest piece of clothing, and that started me thinking about the comfort of old clothes, their stories, and how some items stay with you.
How old is your oldest tee shirt? Does the shirt have a story?
