The science behind olfactory memory--recalling a person or moment in connection with a scent--requires an understanding of the limbic system, the hippocampus, and other, complicated processes taking place in the human brain.  Or, just a close listen to the poetically rendered memories of Community Commentator Paige Owens. In today's commentary, she shares a few of her treasured memories with her late father.

Paige Owens is the Assistant Director of the New Hanover County Public Library, and author of George the Library Duck Finds a Friend. Her philosophy: if life hands you a lemon, turn it into a great story. Do you have a story or idea you just have to share? Find out how you can become a community commentator.
