At my MOPS group the other day a friend made the comment that everytime she smells corn cooking she thinks of Tom Brokaw.
Or maybe it was everytime she hears Tom Brokaw she thinks of corn.
Here's why: Growing up her mom would have the nightly news on as she was cooking dinner. The smell of dinner and Tom Brokaw's voice are forever connected in my friend's mind.
That happens to me too.
The sound of the dishwasher at night (when the lights are dim) always takes me back to my Grandma's house.
I picture myself sitting at her table. The kitchen spotless. A game of scrabble spread out in front of us. Lights dim except the one above us. Periodic conversation. The dishwasher humming in the background.
Simple sounds, simple times and sweet memories from the past.
What sounds, smells and experiences are connected in your mind?
