Onions and Garlic


It has been said that our sense of smell is one of the  most powerful tools for bringing back  memories…

Damp, decaying leaves:  the autumn season, new school year, harvest time…

Shellfish and seaweed at point Judith:  summer time, a reminder of life’s cycles.

Cigarettes and aftershave:  you know who you are….

The most poignant smell  is that of onions and garlic-cooking in warming olive oil… it reminds me of beginnings and endless possibilities… a fresh start.

So here’s to beginnings…and more garlic.
