I'm going to start out with some music, but it doesn't have to be a music thread. I ask participants two things--please don't flood the thread with post after post after post. Please keep it simple, short and sweet. Thank you.
Love the Moody Blues, don't know too much about White Bird, but will now do some exploring.
My two favourite things are
a) Probably anything to do with David Attenborough, and
b) The coast, primarily the British coast.
I force fed my son on Attenborough and other wildlife documentaries from when he was a nipper, and now he's seeing it all for real. He's even more passionate about that sort of stuff than I am, which is wonderful.
I could easily live by the Coast like that beachcomber in Local Hero. Any documentary or sea related programme and I'm glued to the screen. Love it.

And a short snippet of the wonderful "Somewhere at Sea" series, featuring Timothy Spall. (1 minute)

Two of my favorite things:
Hearing the breeze move the leaves in the trees on a hot summer day.
Sailing on the ocean. No motors. No land in sight. Just the water, the wind, and the sky.
The great great granddaughter of John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, and the great-great-great-great-aunt of Diana, Princess of Wales (her father was the first Earl Spencer), she was so lauded for her great beauty and sense of style, that when she went out in public, she was enclosed in a squad of footmen carrying staves to keep the public off of her. In her forties, one young chit of a girl taxed her as a "drab." She raised her chin, assumed her dignity, and said: "When I was your age, I was a wife, a Duchess and a toast." The last was literally true. When gentleman had finished their dinner, and the women had removed to the withdrawing room, they would fill up their glasses, stand, and drink a toast to the Duchess of Devonshire.
