      of the senses. Mom's cookies baking in the oven, the cotton candy machine, eraser shavings, pencil shavings, too for that matter. The smell of the ocean, seaweed, a spring day and my favorite, in Oregon, the scent of pine woods on a hot summer day. Aaaaahhhh! They all bring a picture with them of days gone by, when we were all young.

      Time is an enormous, long river, and I’m standing in it, just as you’re standing in it. My elders are the tributaries, and everything they thought and every struggle they went through & everything they gave their lives to flows down to me-Utah Phillips
