So predictably, I went on a generic rant at work today about the 'one trick pony' aspect of fireworks. I dig them for a minute or two but then I'm done.
I was then asked if I liked jets doing fly pasts.
Survey said, "ugh urr"
But the follow up question was a real zinger. "What does inspire you?"
I lamely offered "nature", only to be reminded how I watch Anne tend to her garden each day from the elevated safety of our balcony.
I guess beautifully designed buildings and objects inspire me.
Music creates all levels of emotion in me.
I love film, art, photography, typography, fashion, but before you know it, your moving into a list at the bottom of a shitty resumé.
Keep fit, cooking and the novels of John Grisham do not inspire me. But references are available from my previous employers.
Travel is inspiring of course, but I suppose when you break it all down, what these lists really show is that I'm inspired by learning.
Just not learning about fireworks or jet flyovers.
