It is a truth universally acknowledged that the quickest way to a powerful memory is through the nose. Which brings me to today’s familiar fragrance.
Here in my hotel near Portland, there is an aroma that strongly recalls my mother-in-law’s house in California. It’s at once comforting and exciting, the joy of visiting people and a place I love, the delight of good company and fine wine.
And it reminds me that I am fewer than 72 hours away from Handsome’s redolent embrace.
