I was walking down M Street when I caught a whiff of a distinctive scent – the smell of 2×4 wooden boards. Instead of standing on a busy sidewalk, I was transported back to the lot in Massachusetts where my dad and five other men framed our home…. and to the dim stage where 25 actors stood poised to help build a set.
The memories were vivid because of that wonderful aroma of fresh lumber.
There are other scents that never fail to bring back memories for me, like:
fresh cut grass
salty ocean air
What scent does it for you?
