Reconstructing Meaning in the Face of Loss: A Nosetalgic Smell and Tell
Sunday November 10, 2013: 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room
A narrative retelling of the relationship to a person we’ve loved and lost becomes profound when the sense of smell is introduced as a catalyst for memory. Michelle Krell Kydd, editor of the award-winning blog Glass Petal Smoke, will introduce Smell Mapping a tool for cataloging memories and continuing our relationship with a loved one in an internalized form.
Workshop attendees are encouraged to bring aromatic items that remind them of a particular loved one who has passed on (cologne, shampoo, soap, spices, etc.). These will be used for personal inspiration and act as a catalyst for storytelling.
