Top Five Inspirations

Since I’m a list maker, I thought I would make a list of the things that inspire me most throughout my day, shaping my mood and my work.

  1. Nature.  This has always had a great influence over my mood and work, I would be happy to live like Thoreau.  The first film I ever made in grade 7, was about birds.  It always seems to come back to the birds.  Probably some deep psychological meaning to that 🙂
  2. God/Religion. God and religion are two separate, but related, issues…first comes my relationship with God, then religion. I’m a cradle Anglican…born, baptised, confirmed, never wavered, Anglican.
  3. Love.  The love of friends most of all.  I’ve had to go out and find the people I love, wrestle them to the ground, and hold them there until they loved me back. I know…lol, psychological again!
  4. Social Justice.  I can remember always being on the side of the underdog even as a small child.  If I felt that someone was being mistreated, or that there was some kind of injustice going on, I would be compelled to speak out.  I just could not keep my mouth shut…got me into some trouble with adults that thought a child should not be speaking to them in that way…but so what, it was, and is, wrong. My favorite Beatles song is, “Blackbird,”…hmm, social justice and birds.
  5. Color.  I have a mental and physical reaction to color. I’m aware that it influences my mood.  My bedroom is painted orange with brown swirls…hmmm, maybe I should bring this up with my therapist…wait, I don’t need therapy anymore because I blog. lol.

God Bless, Julia
