Following Our Senses

I am currently reading Diane Ackerman's book, A Natural History of the Senses. I am reading it to help me be more aware of sensory experiences in my writing and incorporating them to make my writing more personal and graphic. It has been interesting how, as I read about each sense, I become more aware of it and less likely to take it for granted. I think the book will make me more attuned to my character's senses but will also help me be more aware of the sights, sounds, tastes, smells and touches which surround me and carry me through each day.
