    You might recognise this song...

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

    When the dog bites, when the bee stings
    When I'm feeling sad


    I need a list of favourite things 

    because then I won't feel so sad.

     

    Give an answer then ask the question again...

    What is your favourite colour?

     

    Green...

    What is your favourite book?

    Hi Gruff,

    My favourite colour is green too, and my favourite novel is The Book Thief. I remember that song well from The Sound of Music :)

    Questions are more fun than answers - I like blue. I have no favourite book but I like those that ask me at their end to be more than I was at their beginning.  Philip.

    Well I like a lot of animals, So is it OK to list a few,? because it is way to hard to pick only one.

    Kitty cats, cute little ducklings and elephants.

    What is or was your favourite subject at school?

    Literature. I love stories. Everyone has a whole library of stories in their lifetime - so there is a lot to love. Absolutely my favourite subject.

    My favourite memory was only last week, when my husband knelt down in the park, and asked me to marry him all over again.

    What is your favourite fruit to munch on?

    Shelley anne, that is a beautiful memory, I am happy that happened for you.

     My favourite fruit is a competition between the loquat, blood plumb, and Lychee. Today though I am saying the loquat. We had a tree of them in the house we lived between the ages of 6 and 9 and I still love them now. They make splendid jam and pies as well.

     

    What is your favourite guilty pleasure?

    Perhaps for today your question.  Questions arise and we respond and in that tension our lives unfold - To what extent does our answers meet the demands of our questions?                       Philip.

    Hey Philip I so so much wanted to answer your question, but I could not think of the answer. I hope that is OK? And you must be so flexible to sit like that.

    So here is my question......

    If you have a favorite flower, what is it?

    Echinacea, also known as Coneflower. It is like a really giant daisy. They make me happy.

     

    What is your favourite street name?

    The one that is in front of me at the time. Of course its 'OK' not to have 'an' answer or 'the' answer to my question. I value understanding over answers as the latter is nourished by it and allows us over time to ask richer questions while accepting that our answers are only 'moments in time' and will flourish and change.                                            Philip.

    I think you have a good point there Philip, these questions and answers are only moments in time. I quite like that, being mindful of moments is something I find helpful. 

     

    What is your favourite food?

    I don't know. Once when I lived on the Grow community those consigned to the cooking team were obliged to prepare a vegetarian dish for me as well as another person. They were no more skilled in cooking than I was in the team I was assigned too. The result was very unpalatable but I consumed it with relish and thanked them for their effort. That does not answer your question but that was the most important culinary experience of my life.      Philip.

    Thank you Philip, I find that quite interesting particularly your kindness in thanking them, having recently been away with work I know all too well how some struggle with vegetarian food.

    There is a place I have been visiting since childhood. Lake Tyers beech. I like its down to earth simplicity, people who are just themselves and I have known forever, the Aboriginal people from across the lake who have great stories and like to share food, memories, and the most beautiful surrounding. The drive to get there over Mount Hotham is special too.

    Ahh, Safeway the fresh food people (I am showing my Victorian upbringing) They seem to be rebranding them into Woolworths which requires me to catch up.

     

    I do rather like climbing a mountain when outdoors...

    I like to sleep in on the weekend :)
    But I also like to do relaxing things; maybe read book, draw some art, or sit down to watch a good movie. It's a bonus if I get to be with people I am close to.

    What is your favourite game?

    Hey Elaja,

    I like shopping too especially when it is nice and quiet . I also like finding bargains at garage sales and op shops.

    If you eat breakfast....... What is your favourite thing to eat at that time?
