Anita Grable, of Yellow Springs, Ohio, writes: "The feelings a person has about the change of seasons aren't exactly emotions, but what are they? Fall is poignant, winter bracing, spring invigorating, summer almost too much -- or that's the way the seasons seem to me here in the Midwest. I wish there were a word for these feelings that kept them separate from what we ordinarily think of as emotions, like anger and joy."

Rosemary

"Rosemary and Time [is on my side]"

I think this is the difference between emotions and impressions.
