Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.
This week, we’re thinking about Smell. American author Helen Keller put it well:
Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.
Most smells pass by us. We don't give any further thought to them. We miss on grounding those smells and linking them to distant memories from our past like the smell of winter holidays, a loved one or the home where you grew up. They linger forever in the maze of your mind waiting to be brought to the surface by your awareness.
We'd love to hear from you!
What are some of your favorite smells and scents? What reminds you most of the winter holiday season?
