Lately, I no longer go out of the house without a shawl in my bag. It’s compact, light and handy. When it’s hot and glary outside, I use it to cover my head like a sunshade in place of an umbrella. When the sun hits my face and arms when I am in the car, I use the shawl to cover my face, head, arms. When it gets too cold in the plane, car, bus, train, I wrap it around my shoulders. Even if it is too hot in Vegas, the stores, hotel lobbies have blasting cold air conditioning. I use the shawl to cover my back and shoulders to protect me from extreme heat, extreme cold. When it’s drizzling, I use it to cover my head. When visiting a cold country, I place it around my neck. My shawl has many uses.
