I always think about Liz's post about 5 senses, think about them driving to work and back. This is my attempt to do one.
smell | Yesterday, I ventured outside to escape the glow of my computer screen. It was raining, real rain that you could smell and see plopping into big concentric circles on the payment. The air smelled of sweet earth. Sounds silly I know, but as a 16-year Seattleite, I don’t get to smell rain very often. Here rain is defined as low grey skies, slick payment and a mist in the air by no visible signs of raindrops falling.
hear | Last Saturday while catching some air, watching birds frolic in blossoming trees on a quiet work campus. I sat for a moment and listened to Paper Birch trees. The unraveling exterior making a soft, pleasing music in the wind.
taste | Mom made a ½ cabbage of cole slaw with gorgonzola cheese. It was so tasty; I ate the entire bowl.
touch | M and I were walking through a store the other day. He is so much taller than me now but when I see him, I swear I still see the “little guy”. I forced him to hold my hand like we use to do (just for a minute or so). It felt really good to feel his hand in mine, even if it is much larger now.
