stepping off the plane in austin today, the air hit me hard.
utah was warm but comfortable.
denver was pleasant.
but as soon as i stepped into the hot and humid air of austin, texas, i was reminded of that same feeling almost a year ago.

just barely 11 months ago, i was in austin for a week on a job.  i remembered how the air seemed unreal as we walked from the airport to our rental car, almost disbelieving it could really feel like this outside.  i thought of how i stayed for an extra day after the shoot, that i rented a car and drove from austin to college station, to see the town that i would soon be living in and to find myself an apartment.

i've had the opportunities to travel some recently, and i've always been flying out of houston.
as i made the drive from the austin airport to college station again for the first time in many months, i thought back to that day, when i was seeing texas for the first time.
i thought of how different my life is now than it was then.
and of how it's still quite the same in some ways.
