As you all know, I’ve been traveling a bit and though I love DFW, Austin holds a special place in my heart. The capitol of my beloved State, a cultural and artistic epicenter…Austin feels new and familiar all at once. Austin feels like home.
As the City swelled with visitors for SXSW, I had a fleeting pang of regret that I would not be attending this year. I was comforted by the fact that festivals aren’t what keep me coming back; it’s my good friends, good food and good fashion. It is the intangible qualities that inspire folks to wear those “Keep Austin Weird” t-shirts. I suppose what I like most about Austin, besides the friendships I have there, is the Spirit of the City, how it lives and breathes. Yes, I definitely feel Austin has a Heart, and a Soul.
