Scent Memories

List four scents that remind you of your childhood.

1. Campfires. My parents and I lived in the woods for a while and did a lot of our cooking over a campfire. And, for that matter…

2. Butter and Garlic Sauteing in a Pan. I might be mistaken, but I’m fairly certain my mother started off all of her meals by preparing these two ingredients.

3. Hay and horse manure. Doesn’t sound too glamorous, but it reminds me of some of the farms I used to visit when I was a kid. I absolutely love when I meet people that smell like this. But they have to smell like hay more than crap!

4. Musty basement smell. It reminds me of when I was 10 years old and thought the coolest bedroom in the house was in the basement (my sister had already claimed it for its day-long darkness).

Describe your “heart” in 3 ways.
This will obviously define what your interpretation of “heart” is.
The sky is the limit.
If you like some limits, then go with objects with detailed descriptions.

1. My heart is a green bough, waiting for a bird.
2. My heart is a cathedral.
3. My heart, sometimes, is pleasant music, but too many things strike the dissonant chord.
