Personal Identifiers

Food so often can takes us back to childhood. the things i ate as a child, regardless of my distaste for them at the time, are such strong identity markers now, that when i encounter them in daily life they trigger memories that are some how organized in my brain by what taste they are attached to. I cannot eat grilled vegetables without thinking of grilling at lake Murray and my mother's old haircut.
