Everytime I'm in the Dollar Store (I go to the Greenfield branch) I'm reminded of how I miss Mama (and my time with Papa in 2006 Las Vegas). So I stay for a bit and absorb the smells. The smells. There are odors reminiscent of the states. Food, air, mall, perfume, supermarket. If you can describe it in detail, please LMK. I think it's more of a sensation, a headspace. Like a random scent wafts and suddenly I feel I'm at a Vons. I can be editing something at work, encounter a state name, then, a mini avalanche of memories.
