“My Favorite Things”

Saturday night was “Oscar Night” at our house. My cousin Darrell, who is the principal timpanist for the SSO, and his wife Shelley had invited us to a night at the Movies – a Night of Oscar Award Winning Music. There are few things that truly say what our hearts cannot say.

I have often wondered what it is about music that brings out such emotions in all of us. Music consoles us when we are sad, invigorates us in happier times and bonds us to others.

Imagine sitting there and listening to Gone With The Wind, Lara’s Theme, Pirates of the Caribbean and The Sound of Music in 3d 7.1 living surround sound… And that got me thinking about my favorite things.

The first blossoms in spring. Roses that remind me of the ones that my grandma grew in her garden. Music that touches our souls. Misty mornings when you are camping. Seeing everything I thought I knew in a different light, and from a crooked angle. Setting off on a journey. Losing yourself in a Pixar Movie – “UP”. When I saw my tree I knew I had finally found the spot where my world met the world of “UP.”
