I am convinced that I have an extra-sensitive nose. A simple scent can affect my entire mood. As you can imagine, this quirky characteristic definitely has its pros and cons, but it seems perfectly lovely whenever the good smells are involved. Take, for instance, the spicy scents of Autumn. They make this time of year all the more comforting and peaceful. A waft of mulled cider, with its cinnamon and cloves, is always a sure sign that Fall has arrived. The scent of nutmeg sprinkled onto the Thanksgiving egg nog is a once-a-year treat. And, breads made from cardamom seeds evoke delightful memories of childhood.
I think that Fall is a season that intrigues all the senses. My nose is certainly thankful and definitely delighted.
