Memory Lane

Isn’t it amazing how memories work?

It seems like winter-time is full of memory triggers for me, specifically memories of my childhood.

There is something about the cold air that reminds me of exam days and sandwiches with beef or salmon cream cheese spread on them.

Some smells, like oranges, just trigger a feeling and fleeting memories of peeling oranges in front of oil heaters.

These memories in turn trigger more memories and sometimes you can go down the strangest paths.

Sometimes a song can also have very strong “memory-feelings” attached to it as well and you find yourself thinking about things that happened that would never normally be brought forward.

What are some smells that bring back memories for you?
