Reply SueB,NH says: August 1, 2019 at 11:52 am I was in an accident several years ago, and out of work for most of a year. The first time I went into a library, I almost cried: it was the first time I’d smelled the scent of rooms full of books since before my accident. There’s nothing like it, and you don’t realize you miss it until you encounter it like I did. 🙂 Reply Bill Michtom says: August 1, 2019 at 1:57 pm Smell is the most powerful trigger to the memory there is. A certain flower or a whiff of smoke can bring up experiences long forgotten. Books smell musty and rich. The knowledge gained from a computer has no texture, no context. It’s there and then it’s gone. If it’s to last, then the getting of knowledge should be tangible, it should be smelly. – Rupert Giles, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Reply SueB,NH says: August 5, 2019 at 10:41 am If a computer is smelly, that’s normally a very bad sign! 😉 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
