When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
~ The Sound of Music ~
One of my primary coping mechanisms when lost in the wilderness of depression and/or other mental health crises is to turn to my favorite things. Although I do enjoy raindrops on roses, wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings and silver white winters that melt into spring, these are quite difficult to organise in an emergency so I’m forced to resort to more simple pleasures, such as; art, film, music and photography.
This page is a sanctuary to which I can turn when things become unmanageable. An assortment of galleries, music videos, artworks and random oddities that have the power to fill me with happiness, inspiration and calm. A place virtually guaranteed to put a smile on my face!
Feel free to have a look around…perhaps you’ll find something that will become a favourite thing of your own.
Actors and Actresses
1 an object worshipped, especially because a spirit is supposed to lodge in it.
2 something which is regarded with too much reverence or given too much attention
For the record I don’t think a spirit has taken up resident in every pair of dungarees in the world. These are random things that perhaps I spend a little too much time thinking about. Things that I am deeply, deeply fond of. Things that simply make me happy in all sorts of (occasionally weird) ways! :-)
This page is in a constant state of flux. As new favorites enter my life (or old favorites return) new pages will be created. Some of the existing galleries will be added to without notice. Others will be removed if they fall from favour. Basically, whatever makes me happy, goes! Which is what this place is all about! :-)
