I love Bob Ross.
Growing up, his show was on PBS around lunchtime when all that was on TV was news. So my brother and I – home alone in the summer – would make our grilled cheese sandwiches, turn on PBS, and spend 30 minutes engrossed in the world of Bob Ross and his happy little trees. Even as an adult, I find watching him to be almost meditative – he is calming, soothing, and entrancing. And in the middle of his painting tips, you got life tips too. There are no mistakes – just make it into a happy little tree.
