I boarded a flight from the United States to France, located my seat and situated myself for the long flight. I had my plans all laid out. I was going to work on the computer some, read, rest, have a meal and maybe even a movie somewhere in between. Yes, it was going to be a relaxing and enjoyable flight. As the final passengers boarded the plane I was already in my zone with my newly purchased book in hand and chapter one under way.
When my oldest brother was born, my parents made sure to take lots of pictures to remember those special moments of raising a new baby boy. They took pictures of him eating, pictures of him sleeping, pictures of him playing, and pictures of him just acting silly. They filled two photo albums with wonderful memories. My twin brother and sister, who were born next, had many of the same experiences of having pictures taken of them.
I was walking through Edmonds today and as I turned the corner onto a side street I noticed it. It took a moment to register in my head at first, but it was the equivalent to a warm spring day.

Someone was doing their laundry and the smell of laundry detergent and dryer sheets had filled the air. I love the smell of clean laundry.
