The past few days, everything has smelled too strong. Putrid, sour smells are everywhere. Yoga stunk like a newly lacquered gymnasium, along with the usual stenches of people’s perfumes, body sprays, body lotions, and shampoos. I prefer the simple smell of a body in clean clothes, changed and washed—within 24-36 hours. All else is cat piss to me. The air for two days, in the car, outside, even when I woke up, has had this dense smell of sour, rotten, oil. I just learned that the air quality is low lately, even in the red.
