In Touch With the Senses
In Touch With the Senses It had been a long day of studying with a lot of anticipation so I decided to step out on the balcony to get in touch with my senses. Taking a deep breath through my nose I drew-in the autumn air filling my lungs with the cold crispness and subtle flavors of the season.
