    And, if you are paying attention, you probably paid too much.

    Life just is; the bewildering part depends on how much you are paying attention.

    I think humans get more out of smells than they might realize.
    It is the oldest and most primal of our senses. Our sense of smell is linked to all our other modes of perception. We all have an odor that evokes a strong response and memory that can transport us to another time and place. Coffee does that for me. One whiff of fresh brewed coffee takes me back to summers spent at my grandparents house, complete with smells, sights, sounds, emotions, etc….sometimes reality literally melts away and it is almost as if I am back there, waking up, snuggled under the covers, the smell of brewing coffee, the sound of my grandmother in the kitchen and my grandfathers rustling of the newspaper.
    A sense of smell is a dogs primary way of mapping its world and of communication. Imagine what he must experience through the power of smell.
    I have a hound dog and she gets so into smells that she losses the sense of hearing. I can walk right up behind her meowing like a kitty and she doesn’t even know I am there until I pat her on the rump.
    We are such a visually orientated society that I think we marginalize our sense of smell and mostly try and ignore smells unless it is “pleasant”.
    I don’t think a dog classifies smells as good or bad, just a cornucopia of information and sensual pleasure. My dog seems to enjoy equally the smell of roasting chicken and rolling in a dead carcass. she even seems to have no aversion to the smell of skunk. She doesn’t like getting sprayed in the face, but I once caught her about to roll on the dead carcass of a skunk reaking of it’s own perfume.

    This artist Merry-Go-Round is messin’ with my preconceived notions of Skin Horse reality, haha! A sigh of relief for the new easier to read font, though.
