Well I think I finally have to admit it: I lost my hat. My beloved Akubra Snowy River hat is gone. Where? I have no idea. After weeks of searching, asking, retracing my route over several hundred miles of roads and dozens of miles of trails, it’s still nowhere.
The only place I can think it might have gone is with the wind. Maybe I set it down outside, forgot about it, and the wind carried it away. I’m heartbroken, but there are worse ways to lose something you love than to the desert winds.
Hopefully it’s still out there, traveling without me. Maybe someday, it’ll blow back into my life. I wonder what the chances are that I can find another vintage Akubra in my size for a fraction of the new retail price… Do you hear me, Universe?! Show me some more of that magic!
