There are some things in life that are so sure: the smell of vanilla, the round, melancholic base of a well-tuned cello, the blue of the sky on its clearest days, the feel of the wind as it brushes against you, a slight chill, or even the creamy flavor of your favorite tomato and basil soup on the tip of your tongue on such a day. The body innately knows these sensations or recognizes it like a long-lost friend each time you encounter it, forming its own memory with each of our senses. As humans, we are exceedingly fortunate to not only have these senses, but with our kinesthesia. We can recollect a treasure trove of many different memories that accompanied these tangible impressions.
It's strange how one of my most vivid memories touched upon all of my senses at the tender age of nine after meeting a particular neighbor. I didn't know it at the time, but that neighbor would be my best friend, and we would be inseparable. She had one thing that distinguished her from everyone else I knew. She was born with something extra.
