Three years ago today, I fell and broke my face. Only by whatever grace I have did I avoid breaking my neck.

As such, I now consider 11/14 to be the start of my new year. This time around, I seem to be letting myself take a pause or three.

Your support and love has been invaluable to me. I'd like to take this opportunity to humbly apologize for any offense I may have given, unintentionally or not, and to beg for your forgiveness. If I have offended you, please let me know via email so that I may make such amends as I may.

Again, thank you. This place has been an oasis in some very rough times, and I appreciate it.

The smell I most associate with "home" is Market Spice tea. For those who don't know it, it's an orange-cinnamon black tea sold by Market Spice, a shop in Pike's Market in Seattle. It's so citrusy that you can't leave a plastic utensil in with the tea, because the orange oils will melt the plastic. My parents drank Market Spice by the gallon, and there was always a pot on the counter. My mother tapered her drinking of it many years ago, but the house is still permeated with the orange/cinnamon/black tea scent.

I don't like tea that much. I don't like the tannins, and I don't like how my breath smells after drinking it. I love the smell of tea steeping, but it's wasted on me. Instead, I have a lot of scented candles scattered around my apartment. Two of my favorite scents are citrus and spice, unsuprisingly. Nothing says Home more than that. And now, I have the best smell ever in a candle, because I finally got around to ordering the Market Spice travel candles.

Mmmmmm. So tasty. So nummy. I have one at work and one at home, and I keep taking big whiffs of them. So very nice. Home.


What is your "home" scent?

Two years ago.

Two years ago today, I fell and broke my face. Only by whatever grace I have did I avoid breaking my neck.

As such, I now consider 11/14 to be the start of my new year. This time last year, I was preparing to embark on a whole new phase of life. At this mark this year, I now have that life, and it's a good one.

Your support and love has been invaluable to me. I'd like to take this opportunity to humbly apologize for any offense I may have given, unintentionally or not, and to beg for your forgiveness. If I have offended you, please let me know via email so that I may make such amends as I may.

Again, thank you. This place has been an oasis in some very rough times, and I appreciate it.

The Colour and the Shape was released 9 years ago. The Foo Fighters were formed in 1995.

I really shouldn't listen to the 90's alternative stations. It just serves to remind me of how much time has passed between then and now.

Post a memory you have of me in a comment.

Then, of course, post this to your journal and see what people remember of you.
