A Food Memory

February 12, 2010

Thanks to an online sight that allows people to connect with people from their past, a friend from elementary school and I found each other.  She posted a note about how she remembered us playing together at my house and my mother making the best hamburger she had ever eaten in her life! 

Why do I not recall this moment in my history?  Perhaps because I ate my mother’s great cooking all of the time.  But it’s interesting to note that the sense of taste brought a memory of our time together back to her. 

When in your writing could the sense of taste be used?  (Don’t just stick in the sense of taste – – only if it is appropriate.)  Or perhaps a particular taste is so wonderful or so horrible, it will move you to write a poem about it? 

Right now, the thought of my mother’s cooking, reminds me to add this in my own writing.  And to hit the kitchen for a mid-morning snack!
