Do you ever experience going back in time? Ok, not time travel per say, but something reminding you of a place, a person, an event, a smell, a plant, a food and you go back to a simpler time
Most recently, it was the smell and taste of a peach cobbler. This time going back to my grandmother’s kitchen and her orchard where we played in the red sandy soil for hours on end.
All of a sudden you are transported to that moment, the memory washes over you, and you smile at the wonder, the beauty, the remembrance. What takes you back?
For me, the touch- me- not plant found in the field took me back to my first introduction of the magic of the leaves closing up when touched. I was a child again: amazed, mesmerized, and in awe of the wonders of this world.
Take the trip back: treasure it, enjoy it, relive it; because soon enough the reality of today will be present.
