Early morning, it’s still. Lean forward and inhale the soft fragrance of an open rose.

“When nothing else exists from the past, after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered…the smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls bearing resiliency, on tiny and almost impalpable drops of their essence, the immense edifice of memory.”

Marcel Proust
