Newcomers, naysayers: This is how we tell our quintuplets apart.
Spring: Taste. Bitter flowers on children's tongues. Feta cheese (goat).
Summer: Touch. Cotton blend sweaters. Fog on faces, in lungs.
Bay Area Summer: Vision. Orange moon. Brown hills. Sutro Tower partially obscura.
Fall: Hearing. The leaves blow fiercer, and pause. The trees are in a hurry all of a sudden.
Winter: Smell. The bay, two miles inland. Rotting humos.
