NJ Smells...

New Jersey...I can't get over the smells...they are oh so good...

I can't get over the emotion that wells up inside of me when I inhale in NJ.  It is hard to describe...

You should have seen me with my head out the window, neck extended as far as humanly possible, sort of like a dog as I was driving around.

So what smells?

The bay.  Most visitors will tell you it is a foul odor.  Me?  I love it!  It reminds me of home.  Nothing like the bay at low tide.

Dirt.  Yeah, I can't really describe it.  Dirt is everywhere, right?  Well, I guess NJ dirt is different.  The minute I step off the plane, there is the smell.  I love it.  I feel at home.

Pine Trees.  In certainly places, where the pine trees are blowing in the wind, the smell is intoxicating.  By the way, I love that sound too.  The pine smell is so natural.  Not like a pine candle, or a bag of potpourri.  It is real...it is good.

I like NJ.  I miss it.  But I am sure glad to be going home...
