TBD on Ning

Some things are best described in images but they leave out what can affect us at our deepest core....scent.   The rush of smell that goes straight to our core....to our brain...stimulating a flood of memory...
Tell about what affects you....was it Grandmas' cologne...Grandpas' choice blend of pipe tobacco.
Use your words to convey the emotion or to describe the scent....

Just for starters......
