I'm sure you've heard about using your senses to bring your writing alive. Yesterday while hiking, the point came home to roost. While returning along an upwardly angling trail, I was passed by several teens. Apparently, trying to catch up, a boy of about 11 years came toward me leaping from rock to rock. I veered left to give him more space, but he just flew bye in a single bound. The interesting thing (besides the fact that I hadn't been flattened) was the sweet smell of pink bubble gum as he raced by. In a heartbeat I was a child again. What smell(s) awaken your memories? What books give those details?
