Julie Andrews singing the *magical* tune
“My Favourite Things”
from the film “The Sound of Music”
I still remember swinging around and around and around and around and around in circles in the living room when I was a little girl:
bewitched by the song,
entranced by the pictures and movement on telly, and
enthralled by the joy of it all.
But then strangely, a sense of ‘sobriety’ would descend within me and offer some form of bizarre, muted courage… not the best form, but it was something nonetheless.
So I guess I have a lovey-likey relationship with this song. It doesn’t lift me quite as high as “Spoonful of Sugar” from ‘Mary Poppins’… but it makes me more contemplative of my inner feelings and deeper emotions.
I seem to have some kind of outlandish connection with this tune… anyways, maybe you’ll find some form of connection with it too, otherwise, just enjoy the sound, the voice and the tunes of this adorable, *golden* classic that crosses time :: forevermore ::

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;
Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes;
When the dog bites;

‘The Sound of Music’ (1965)
but with an *adorable* slideshow:::…
