today, while walking outside during a short lunch, i noticed it's the little things i miss about the island. one being the smell. how weird is that, that i would miss the smell of this place??? and it's not a good smell like coconuts and fresh air. it's more like the smell of the streets.
we don't get that smell over on the mainland. at least not where i'm at, where there's nothing but big shady trees and the freshly mowed green green grass of home.
i think it's funny how a certain smell can trigger things from your memory. i know that every time i drive by any kind of oil refinery or chemical plant that i think of my dad and how we could never tell "was it really him this time???".
