Your five senses are amazing things! It’s incredible to think that a simple smell can invoke a childhood memory and a taste can bring you right to a certain point in time.

Many times, the sound of crashing ocean waves, bird calls, and regional accents have reminded me of specific instances in my life. In Massachusetts, another sound sends me back to my college days in Boston. While not as relaxing as birds chirping or waves crashing, this noise is certainly nostalgic.
