i participated in an instagram live interview today, during which i was asked whether my gathering is entirely visual, or whether there is an element of smell involved. i had to admit that there is exactly zero smell involved in my gathering, and yet, now i am wondering what these crisp winter leaves smell like. do they give off the dry smell of a fall walk in the woods, or the musty smell of spring along the trail. i don’t know. but i’m going to be paying attention.
