The Power of Smell

moonkissingthesea Neuroscientists say that smell is the most powerful sense we have to awaken memories. Have you found that to be true? The smell I miss is the scent of the ocean air at night. I used to love to drive to the beach at night to watch the full moon on the water and inhale the salty air, fresh and alive. It calmed my nervous system. It brought my mind to a place of peace. It formed around me like a cocoon. I do miss that scent.

What scent do you love? How does it effect you?

Keep the pen moving,
