Favorite Things

Note: the following has been written by Maria and subsequently posted by Sarah, Maria's friend.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens,
Brown paper packages tied up with string
These are a few of my favorite things.”

I don’t know how much I love or, quite frankly, think about bright copper kettles.  And I’m definitely not a fan of warm woolen mittens - unless that’s a metaphor for the Mediterranean Ocean.  BUT…I do have a lot of favorite things.  And while things don’t bring true happiness, as Maria sings, they do help when the dog bites and the bee stings. 

May you find some impermanent joy in these compounded phenomena!  Bee Well.  xoxo

Grab a friend, a lonely elder, a single parent, and partake of some of your favorite things.  Did I mention cream colored ponies and warm apple strudel?  Yum.
