The Smell of Popcorn...

...has made its way back to my room where I am working away on the computer. Smells can take me places in a snap!

Popcorn has such a yummy, hot, buttery smell. It reminds me of watching a chick-flick with CoffeeGal last year and tossing in a few peanut m&m's just to sweeten it up a bit. Fun times!

And it has reminded me of other distinctive smells from my memory...like the exotic sweetness of the orange trees in Israel as I disembarked off the plane onto the tarmac about 22 years ago with my parents. That was a LONG time ago and SUCH an adventure!

And then there are nasty smells. I remember the stench of burning trash on the foothills of Haiti 11 years ago. Praying for them. It was already so hard for them to live day to day and now this...

Smells are so powerful. I really think you could blindfold me and put me in some locations and I'd know exactly where I was by the smell.
