For the MY FAVORITE THINGS collab
(underlined my favourite definitions - but discussion welcome; great ideas come from questioning simple things like words.)
To have a great attachment to and affection for
To have passionate desire, longing and feeling for
To like or desire (to do something) very much
To make love to
To be in love
most liked; preferred above all others
a material object without life or consciousness; an inanimate object
some entity, object, or creature that is not or cannot be specifically designated or precisely described
anything that is or may become an object of thought: things of the spirit.
a fact, circumstance, or state of affairs
What really strikes me is the definition of 'favourite': it's only ever in comparison to other things. Because you favourite one thing (or person) what effect does this have on other things, and is it healthy for your favourite, or for you?
When we talk about love in this collab we generally refer to it as a possessive, almost manic form of 'like', more like infatuation then a deep, true love. But if you do share a deep, true love with "an inanimate object" this collab is exactly where to share it!
When we talk about things we generally refer to them as inanimate objects. I love to do things, not particularly to own things. If some thing is my favourite it is because it has family, friendship, or spiritual connections. I also love music, and some particular albums and songs, and these are definitely things. How healthy is it to have a favourite? You don't eat your favourite food everyday do you? A favourite song only lasts until you play it so much you get sick of it.
Themes flow from this idea like honey - sometimes it's very thick but other times you can't stop it from escaping the container, it's so runny. Drain that cup dry!
A background topic popping up in different places of my life, hopefully it makes you think or see links in your life as well!
In note form, just wanted to quickly share.<...
"I've just had a thought."
"I don't like you using that phrase."
"Because it implies you can think."
Keep your feet on the ground when your head is in the clouds. When your head isn't in the clouds, it's time to put your feet up. :)
