What does nice mean?

What does nice mean?

The word nice has so many meanings to each of us but I am going to try and give you my side of things as a blind person. What does nice mean to me? It means so many things as perceived by my senses. Here are a few meanings.

Nice: When someone goes out of their way to be nice or kind to me. When that person leaves what they are doing to come and help me out of difficulty. When they go out of their way to show me where to find something or someone. When I am unable to find the door to a building and they step out of their car to help me.

Nice: The scent of fresh cut grass. The fragrance of flowers wafting on the air. The scent of Christmas cakes and cookies being baked. The scent of my favorite foods being cooked by mom. The smell of lavender, spice, and apples.

Nice: The taste of honey. The taste of sparkling wine. The taste of warm apple crisp. The taste of spicy food.

Nice: Birds singing at springtime. Soft music in the background. Bells ringing at Christmas time. The sound of the blades of skates in a rink. Children laughing and dogs barking happily in a park. The sound of waves rolling towards the shore.

Nice: The feel of cool grass beneath my feet. The delicate petals of flowers against my fingertips, the warmth of sunshine on my cheeks, and sand on a beach under my toes and water from the sea rolling over me. The fresh cool winds of spring against my cheeks.
