Our Sense of Smell
There is an abundance of aromas in this world. I am extremely appreciative of our sense of smell because without it we would be missing out on a huge part of this physical experience, such as:
Walking along a sidewalk with a chain link fence covered with honeysuckle, or by the floral department in the grocery store, or along the coast and smelling the freshness of the sea. Smelling the all so familiar smell of a partner, and food being cooked at home, or the herbs planted in the garden, along with tasting the food or drink before it even touches the tongue. Recalling peaceful childhood smells that bring up pleasant memories, smelling a campfire late at night while surrounded by stars, or smelling freshly cut grass.
Yet not everyone considers all the aromas listed above as pleasant because some may bring on allergies or a painful memory. As there are very many pleasant smells, there are indeed awful ones too. As unpleasant as they may be, they are still meaningful as we should heed the warning with such smells. Mostly all distasteful smells are as such so we instinctively know to stay or get away from them.
The sense of smell is great!
