scent

I remember those long love letters I wrote and received in high school. They were awesome. We had no cellphones or ipads, just pens and paper. I kept every single letter. It smells like fingerprints and cheap cologne and years and years of kept. How would my daughters store theirs? On a flash, an external drive, the recycling bin?

I don’t think people my age consider the effect the screen has on them. Sometimes it feels like I cannot possibly look at another image again. It’s so much, all the information tearing through my brain via social media etc.

I’m a real letter kinda girl.

Where did the scent go?
