My Favourite Things

I woke up today with the melody of “My Favourite Things” – one of the soundtracks in the classic movie sound of music playing in my head over and over.

Lying down, eyes closed and half awake, I thought about my favourite things and decided to make a list.

So, here are a few of my favourite things, in no particular order:

1. Drifting off to sleep while listening to classical music or Beyonce’s “Ave Maria” or the papas and mama’s “dream a little dream of me”

2. Twisting and gyrating with reckless abandon, when I’m alone, to a tune playing in my head.

3. Curling up on a couch with a good novel while tuning everything else out.

4. Watching the sun set from atop a mountain.

5. Capturing nature’s beauty from a mountain top with my camera lens (and then frowning at the details missing from the image, because it was taken with a low resolution camera)

6. Feeling the breeze blow in my face.

7. Being in the midst of loved ones and just watching their bantering and smiling.

8. Talking with God. On my knees, pacing around, lying down, in the bathroom…anywhere. anytime.

9. Making music and then playing it back, smiling and nodding, imagining myself a virtuoso.

Like Maria, my favourite things get me through the bad times and makes me feel better, helps me relax and feel happy and content.

    The classical Sounds Of Music. That’s one film I could never tire of watching. My favourite things are too numerous to put into writing but chief amongst them is God Almighty, for keeping my other fav things, my family who I love to bits and pieces, alive and well.
