My favorite things…

“Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens….”

“These are a few of my favorite things!”

I remember watching “The Sound of Music” on tv when I was a child.  It was one of my favorite movies!  I used to sing along with Julie Andrews at the top of my lungs.  I wish I could say I sounded just like her, but the truth is though I can sing I am no Julie Andrews.  But that is besides the point.

This time of year reminds me of this tradition of watching certain things every year with my family.  Besides “The Sound of Music,” I remember watching “The Wizard of Oz,” “Frosty the Snowman” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” every year.  My family would gather around the tv with a snack to enjoy these shows together.

I think that is the only thing that I miss about “the way it was.”  Nowadays with on-demand and YouTube etc. it is possible to watch any one of these shows at any time.  This used to be something that we all looked forward to doing together once a year.  It was special.

It is a fun memory!

        Many years ago, 1969 to be exact, I was in a similar situation. Kinda. Married, two little girls, 5 & 1, attending City University of New York, and working as a guidance counselor, across the river in Jersey City, NJ. All I can say is that, eventually, I got my degree, sent the dissertation from Los Angeles where I then living. Somehow it all worked out. It will also work for you. You seem determined. Here’s good luck to you, fellow explorer.
