QotD: Memories

Question: To what non-physical (people, places) things are your strongest memories tied?

My Answer: As my previous post answers: music. However, I've heard that for many people, it's a smell, a sound (non-musical), a general feeling. For some it may be the color green. I'm curious to see the answers.

You are encouraged to answer the Question of the Day for yourself in the comments or on your blog.

  1. Smells, I think.

    I smell certain things, and then remember something i've come to associate with that smell. For instance, I was coming downstairs last week and smelt gingerbread, which reminded me of Christmas last year.

  2. Definitely music for me.

  3. I can't play Micro Machines on the Playstation any more, because it reminds me of a very bad headache I had while playing it a long time ago...

  4. Definitively music.

    I actually posted a similiar post to yours some time ago.

  5. Music, hands down.

  6. Music is sound, which is a physical thing. Smell is also a physical thing as is touch.

  7. mnb, you knew what I meant. And next time, leave a real name and a real email address. This "" stuff is crap. As it says above the form into which you enter your comments, Have some guts and use a real name, email, and URL.

  8. Wind. I grew up in South West Florida, so certain winds will totally remind me of other times and places. There is a different feel and smell to cold front winds, "two to three days before the hurricane" winds, the weak wind before the typical afternoon shower, etc.

    After 20+ years in FL I am getting to the point where I can feel what the weather will be. I used to think that was a myth.
