My Favorite Things

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 . . . Cream colored ponies, An' crisp apple strudels, Doorbells an' sleigh bells, An' schnitzel with noodles, Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings, These are a few of my favorite things . . . Girls in white dresses, With blue satin sashes, Snow flakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes, Silver white winters, That melt into springs, These are a few of my favorite things . . . When the dog bites, When the bee stings, When I'm feelin' sad, I simply remember my favorite things, And then I don't feel so bad . . . From "The Sound of Music"

Not until I heard the incomparable Carmen Lundy sing My Favorite Things did I really "hear" (i.e., deeply absorb and appreciate) these powerful lyrics.

Carmen's voice is like a perfect, velvet rose. Plucked from Venus. When she sings My Favorite Things, I suddenly see all that's so beautiful in life. And connect with the importance of shifting one's outlook so that you don't miss it.


Stop and smell the roses -- especially this gifted one known as jazz diva Carmen Lundy.

I'm into Carment Lundy, too. If you haven't already done so, make sure to check out her album with Love for sale on it. I like your write on her. She never gets the attention she deserve.
