Smell

Have we smelt anything today? Something good like coffee in the am or something not good like leftover garbage?

Smell seems to me to be a sense that we don’t really use consciously. It helps us navigate the world and know if some food has gone off. But do you ever purposefully smell anything?

And yet, I have some smells, one in particular that is lodged in my memory bank. It is the smell of my grandmother’s garden that I haven’t been in since I was fourteen or younger.

Smell has memories, what are our current smells noting in our memory banks?
