Smell and memory, pt. 2

It smells absolutely lovely outside this morning! Sophie and I were out for a walk and the whole time I kept sniffing. The air is crisp and clean and smells like spring. It reminded me of the Dayton's flower show -- dirt, coolish air and a little touch of something blooming or about to. It also reminded me of Switzerland. Even though we were there in summer, the air always smelled crisp and clean in Kandersteg. Crisp, like it had just come off the snow-capped mountains, which it probably had. And little like dirt and and blooming things. But mostly just crisp. The smell always made me think, 'This is going to be another great day.'
