  1. This is a fun one for me as it brings back wonderful memories and some I can’t decide on. Too many favorite books and outfits to choose from but I do have a favorite color which is yellow because it makes me feel happy. My favorite movie is Harold and Maude because it’s funny, thoughtful, and the soundtrack is incredible. My favorite place is Wakefield, Nebraska where my mom’s mom brought up her eight children and many of them lived there or in Sioux City, Iowa the majority of their lives. I would visit there almost yearly and found so much love and stability while my family moved all over the country.

  2. I keep lists similar to these, but I used this prompt to see if I could actually choose my one favorite book, song, movie, etc. While the choices I made might different a year from now, it’s interesting to try to choose what I think are my top favorites. Thanks for posting the prompt, Dolly.

  3. Oh, my.

    It’s hard to describe the emotion I feel as I’m about to write the answer that’s authentic and true to my heart. It’s not exactly fear, but there is definite hesitation. And I think the reason is that, once I put it down in writing, it will likely change the trajectory of my life.

    But that’s okay. We are, after all, talking about my favorite of favorites, right?

    Deep breath.

    Here goes.

    My favorite place to BE, to LIVE, is Indialantic, Florida.

    It’s on the opposite coast from where I grew up, and to me, it’s perfect.

    I never liked the Pacific Ocean. It’s cold and rough. Harsh.

    On the Atlantic coast of Florida, the waves are softer, and the water is warm and clear.

    The beaches are clean and free of litter. The sand is like white sugar.

    I love to be outdoors when I’m there. I feel so much more alive, so invigorated.

    I love the way the air feels when a storm is whipping up.

    But the biggest thing of all for me is the light.

    When I was growing up in California, I never liked the sunsets. I always felt there was something wrong about seeing the sun set over the water. To me, it always felt like a death.

    But on the east coast of Florida, the sun and moon both rise over the ocean.

    I could watch the sky turn purple and see the silver streak of the rising moon on the waves every day for the rest of my life and never grow tired of it. To me, it’s a singular miracle every time it happens, and I would give just about anything if I could be there today.

    So there it is: Indialantic, Florida is my favorite place to live.

    And I’ve officially declared it in writing.

    Thank you so much for this prompt, Dolly. It definitely set something powerful in motion.

  4. My favourite book: Hard to select a favorite, but the one that comes to mind is Ngugi wa Thiongo’s Devil On the Cross. The setting of the novel takes place in Kenya, and it talks about the African bourgeois who follow their former colonial masters in the pursuit of plundering the resources of Kenya at the expense of the masses. They seek to privatize everything. They would bottle of the air and sell it if they could. This novel in a way is a satire, and it’s also critique of capitalism in general and how it’s used most everywhere on the planet to exploit natural and human resources for more and more profits.

    My favourite song: Mile’s Davis’s Kind of Blue album, and John Lennon’s “Imagine.”

    My favourite movie: The Godfather series. Not so such much for the content, but for how it was put together cinematically.

    My favourite colour: Crimson red and black.

    My favourite outfit: black pants and black sweater

    My favourite place: The Grand Canyon
