exploring & remembering...
Woods nearby explored... can't wait for buds on the branches and more green on the ground. Every conversation is about the weather right now, not because no one has anything else to talk about, but because we're right on the edge of finally saying goodbye to Winter. I think everyone is ready to shed some layers and spend more time outdoors.
The funny thing about this time of year is that it always brings this intense feeling for me to visit Scotland once again. There's something about the smell of Spring, that lightness in the air, that reminds me of Glasgow – the smell of the city as you first step out of the airport and into the parking lot, the smell of the detergent my Granny uses that lingers in her home, the smell of any magazine that's printed in the UK, and the smell of busy streets while out shopping away. It's weird how scent can bring back tons of memories. Scotland has a comforting feeling for me, it always feels like home any time i'm there.
I'm curious, does a certain scent ever remind you of a memory or place?
