what was your impetus to change?

I just felt it was time for a change. I do that from time to time with my clothing (change the style of tie or shirt that I wear, etc.). There was no theological reason for the change.

Does this mean that your bald spot is getting larger?

It is, but I still have quite a bit of hair. I certainly have more hair that a number of younger men that I know. Any spot that is covered by my yarmulke still has hair.

Till then, I must assume that yarmulka is a minhag, and there are no shiurim or sub halochos to a minhag.

Fair enough. I just assumed there was a minimum size. I could easily be wrong.
