Hi, everyone! I found this tag on Elm’s blog and decided to do it, even though they didn’t tag me or anything, because it looks like so much fun! It’s a really creative idea for a tag and a nice change from all the bookish tags I normally do.
I worked on this post off and on for about two or three days, but not in the usual way in which I write blog posts: As in, most of the time I spent working on this was time spent away from my computer. Every time I remembered something that I love hearing, seeing, tasting, et cetera I scribbled it down on a scrap piece of paper and at the end of that handful of days I had everything I needed to write this post!
Anyway, I’ve rambled on for long enough. Enjoy!
- Rain falling on a roof
- A purring cat
- That late summer combination of cicadas and crickets
- An old typewriter
- Foggy mornings
- The color blue
- Sunsets at the beach near my house
- Falling snow on a winter night
- Aspen trees
- Newly mown grass
- Soil after a rainstorm
- Old books
- Freshly baked bread
- My hair after it’s recently been cut
- Warm sand under my toes
- Running my fingers along the edge of pages in a book
- Fresh peaches
- Homemade chocolate chip cookies still warm from the oven
- Orphu @ A Mirror Made of Words
- Evi @ Adventuring Through Pages
- Eve @ Twist in the Taile
- Kate @ The Magic Violinist
- Emily @ Loony Literate
And as always, feel free to participate whether or not I tagged you. (Or ignore this tag, if you so choose.) I thought it was only fitting to tag five people since the tag is about the five senses, but that also means I had to leave a lot of people out. So if you’re not on here, it doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate you!
Ahhhh, I enjoyed writing this post so much! It was very relaxing to go through my lists and look at all the sensory things that make me happy. I guess I don’t often pause to think deeply about the little things I love, such as favorite colors or soothing sounds. So that’s definitely something I should take the time to do… also, now I really want to turn these lists into an art project of some sort. A collage, maybe? Or a multimedia project? I’ll figure something out, I’m sure.
What are your favorite sensory experiences?
