Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – New Sunday Interview Series – Human In Every Sense of the Word – Starting Sunday June 30th 2019
Welcome to the new series of the Sunday Interview..Human in every sense of the word.
As humans there are five main senses that we rely on to navigate through this world. And there is one that we all possess but do not necessarily use all the time…
Sight, Hearing, Touch, Taste, Smell….Sixth Sense.
For some people however, one or more of those senses do not function and we can only imagine the challenges this results in.
I don’t know about you, but I take my senses for granted, expecting to see my surroundings when I wake up each morning, hear the birds sing, feel the bedclothes as I throw them back, and the carpet beneath my feet. I expect to taste the marmalade on my toast, and smell the coffee I am about to drink. I also rely on my sixth sense, the one that people cannot really define, that somehow keeps me from making an error of judgement.
Scientists believe that we have other senses that are also important but that we have lost touch with over our evolution. But for this interview series I would like to focus on the six senses I have mentioned.
I would like you to write from 300 to 600 words about one or more of these senses.
We often associate significant events with our senses… the first time we heard a certain piece of music, touched an object or someone that had a profound effect on us, the first sight of a newborn baby or an event unfolding before our eyes, smelling a flower or eating a new food for the first time that was amazing.
You can choose to write about one sense or all of them, including that elusive sixth sense we have clung on to from the early days of man.
- What I would like you to share is how the engagement of your chosen senses influenced events in your life, perhaps changed your perspective, made you fall in love, or out of love.
- Does a certain smell or taste bring back a memory?
- Did you touch something that resulted in a lifetime phobia?
- Did your sixth sense kick in time to safe you from danger?
- Did you see someone across a room and know that they were the person for you?
- Do you hear a piece of music that brings back memories of someone or an experience in your life?
Please use the 300 to 600 words and if you need more that is fine, use what you need to engage us and our senses . . . Continue reading at Sally’s Smorgasbord
