Creative Thinking: Actor’s suicide brings up painful memories

Last week in my column, I wrote about how memories can be triggered by certain scents. All of the examples I gave were happy memories. Most of my memories are happy ones but, as we all know, life is not always pretty and perfect. I try to keep my unpleasant memories buried below the happy ones so that, if they do come to the surface, it takes a little longer for them to get there. Sometimes the unpleasant memories can rush to the surface so quickly that it takes your breath away.
