Love to travel. There is so much to see and so little time to see it all. It amazes me how different places have different smells, sounds and visuals.
I took this picture on a street in Salzburg, Austria. Best shopping I’ve ever seen – the neatest clothes and accessories. But the smells and sounds….so different. I’ll never forget them. The tantalizing bakeries on every corner. (yes, I tried them all!) The sound of shoes and boots on the cobblestone streets, the rain spattering the umbrellas. All that I remember.
Our senses are important.
We forget to utilize them when we really should, and miss out on the enhanced experience. Our moods, our conversations and learning styles all depend on our senses to make them come alive. Yet do we take the time to stop and absorb and filter all the goodies our senses pour into us?
If you study the picture, I sure you will think of other sensory details it might suggest. Next time you’re in Salzburg, or on a mountain ridge, or just in your own backyard, take a few minutes to drink it all in. Smell it, see it, taste it and feel it. These are the best things to burn into our memories – not all the junk we are exposed to.
Do you take full advantage of your senses? Was there a special place you recall doing that?
