The Scent of Life

“It smells like life.”

Olivia handed me the flower and smiled. I gave it a sniff, and a thousand memories of running around on the hill behind our old house, climbing trees, and pretending to be an outdoor explorer with my childhood friends flooded back to me.

She’s right.

This simple, organic snip of nature is capable of bringing so much happiness, even if it is somewhat fleeting. And while we were sitting there, watching The Doctor show Rose the wonders of the world, I made a pact with myself always to stop, and smell the flowers.
