I don't see smells in color, but for me music has colors. I can
frequently see the colors of people's emotions or physical discomfort.
(A migraine is grey and partially opaque, excitement has little light
flashes). If a person near me is concentrating on a visual image, I
can see it. (I keep this shut off most of the time as it's rude to be
so intrusive, and it's not helpful in relationships.)

Thanks for the synaesthesia link! I hadn't thought about it in about
30 years, when I last had a conversation with another synaesthesiac,
and the brain function wasn't understood then. She insisted whomever
put "Fantasia" together was a synaesthesiac.
