At first glance, it might seem like just an ordinary scarf. And in fact, it is just an ordinary scarf, but it's an ordinary scarf that I've seen someone wearing nearly every day this winter, capturing my attention and peeking my interest as to its popularity. Questioning a woman wearing one, I learn that it's a cashmere Burberry scarf and that Burberry is a popular brand of clothing for New Yorkers. I buy a knockoff to take home with me, a memory of my winter in the big city. It's interesting what captures our attention as we move through our days.
