things I love about the hill country

that there is a river every ten miles…
the 20 degree temperature change when you coast down into a valley on any Texas blacktop at night…
pedernales falls…
the smell of juniper and cedar…
night skies where you can see the stars fall into the distant coast…
that there is a river every ten miles…
shiner bock beer on tap…
100 year old dance halls…
real road house BBQ…
texas music…
texas musicians…
that there is a river every ten miles with names like Guadalupe, Comal, Frio, Blanco and Colorado…
towns like Wimberly, Blanco, Dripping Springs and all those others I’ve past in my life…
log cabins and austin stone houses…

I am afraid these things will disappear before I return.
