The Power of fabric

"In the years since she has been gone, I've taken to curling up beneath my mother's fur coat; it comforts me. Her name is embroidered inside, "Ellie M.," so that it could be easily identified at a party filled with fur-wearing women. Some times I take naps with the coat as a blanket and am transported by the mixture of smells and a lingering odor of a perfume no longer in existence."
