It is a well-known fact aromas affect our emotions. Some smells are happy and others not so much.
Aromas can take us to a better place. Like the smell of baking bread. I enjoy bread a lot and besides giving me that hungry feeling both my grandmothers baked and a warm slice of bread with butter and jam was, and still is, a treat.
I suppose somewhere in that thick skull of mime I’m back with grandma enjoying bread with her.
