Have you ever had that feeling, when you get a whiff of something that transports you back into time. That sensory trigger which takes you on the memory train. A strong magnetic attraction sparking of feelings of love and illusion, of comfort and happiness. You never know when and how … Spontaneous and affable, you are able to experience the moment again. Walking down the street, you get the aroma of freshly baked bread and suddenly you are a child again. You dive into the swimming pool and the smell of chlorine, evokes memories of family vacations splashing around with your siblings. The bell of the old man with his ice-cream cart and you are back in the park with your childhood companions. Feeling the silk on your skin of a new dress and you are catapulted to a night out with your friends. Pungent and musky vibrant orange strings of marigold decorations and
immediately you reminisce a family wedding surrounded by laughter and revelry. The DJ plays an old song and your heart leaps back to a romantic interlude. A scene in a movie and you replay a scene from your life where you are the hero that is lodged somewhere inside. Alluring senses have a way of sniffing out moments.. reminding us of people and experiences the weave into the fabric of our life. Nostalgia sends warmth that slowly spreads to your heart and your mind, flooding you with good vibrations, bringing a glint in your eye and a warm smile on your face.
“We do not remember days, we remember moments. The richness of life lies in memories we have forgotten” ― Cesare Pavese
