Tomorrow I get to create my own little virtual museum of broken relationships...talking to a few friends about breakups, objects as relics of lost lives, the tyrannical imperative of "letting go" and how we resist it.

Got to talk to so many interesting smell scientists--apparently there is NO OTHER KIND of smell scientist--for this @voguemagazine essay about COVID & "nose brains" & Victorian sweat-stained love apples & how smell shapes us more fully than we realize.

Smell is the underappreciated sense, the one many people would sacrifice. But when Leslie Jamison (@lsjamison) lost it due to COVID-19, she began to consider how much it meant to her.

Thirty-two years ago today, I woke up with an axe-in-my-forehead hangover & soul-blistering remorse & have not had a drink since thanks to god & my son & all the outlaws & topless dancers met in church basements. If you’re struggling in the dark, they’re the folks with lanterns.
