2014: Some of My Favourite Things

my_favouritesHere are some of my favourite things – books, films and TV – from 2014. These I have enjoyed more than the time invested, enjoyment or education or inspiration being paramount. My own personal criterion by which I judge (TV especially) is “Is my life worth more than this?” by which I mean would I be best off switching off and just sitting quietly instead. The following is my shortlist where I was able to answer “No!” and note that I am not recommending those where I feel I have wasted my vital life force.

I simply remember my favourite things and then I don’t feel so bad – Rodgers & Hammerstein
