The power of a certain song or a particular smell is incredible.
The opening notes fill your ears and you are thirteen again, falling in love with this band, this song, this light feeling it evokes.
And then you smell it – fall leaves. You are home, where you come from, where your family still lives. You are jumping in that pile of leaves without a care in the world.
But, you didn’t go anywhere.
Songs and smells evoke memories buried deep inside. They are time travelers.
