1. Dark Green. Like forest, alive green.
2. Stormy weather. There's just something about overcast days that are just magical.
3. Animals. Fuzzballs and featherballs alike. They're so adorable...and amusing.
4. Plants. They're so alive and comforting and nourishing...and extremely good company.
5. Cooking. I like to cook. I don't know why. I mean, we all need to eat, but I don't cook to eat, I cook to cook.
6. Ever After. It's a movie starring Drew Barrymore. I've watched it over and over and over dozens of times. I like that she's not a helpless Damsel-In-Distress like other Cinderellas. I like that she can stand on her own two feet. And I like best the scenes of her doing different farm chores at the Manor: slopping the pigs, getting honey from the bee skeps, gathering apples, truffle-hunting, etc...and the scene where she goes swimming in the lake.
7. Holidays. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, the Solstices and Equinoxes, my birthday. Christmas is so magical. I love Christmas lights.
8. The seasons. I love the flower sprouting and the new life of spring, the green and business of summer, the leaves changing and the harvest of fall, and I love the snow and the magic of winter.
9. New Age Music. The haunting melodies of Enya and Loreena McKennit in particular. (I also really like Blackmore's Night and Josh Groban, but I don't think they're considered New Age at all.)
10. Woodstoves and Fireplaces. There is something about heating with wood and building fires that mesmerizes me.
11. Clothing from the Past. Specifically dresses like those Candice Night wears when performing and these (which are costumes, I know):
12. Books. You can read about any subject, learn anything, visit any world.
13. Mountains. Specifically the wild ones. Trees everywhere, wildlife on your doorstep, miles without a single human soul -- this is my idea of paradise.
