Inspiration is something so abstract, intangible and elusive; it comes and goes in the blink of an eye; it surprises and excites. For me, inspiration can come from the most unexpected places and I never underestimate its source.
I’m a very visual person and these videos are truly inspiring to me. Music, video, storytelling, animation, food preparation, colors, sounds, motion, voices, textures.
I hope you find something in them that will inspire you as well. Do watch (and listen to) them if you have the time.
Scratch Massive – Paris: Music video.
Sigur Ros – Valtari: Music video, dance.
What if money was no object – Alan Watts: If only…
The known universe – American Museum of Natural History: Fascinating. Puts everything into perspective.
Oscar-nominated Fresh Guacamole, and Western Spaghetti – PES: Food, or something like it. Animation.
Cotton candy making in China: The next time I have cotton candy, I want it to be a flower.
Don’t swim after lunch - Jens Blank: Animation.
Diane Kochilas, Eat Greek, Live well - TEDxAthens Talk: I love Diane Kochilas, a chef and cookbook author. She is a great ambassador of Greek food abroad and truly inspirational.
Beet cake – Tiger in a jar: Food video. And in one word, yum.
Also, I have to share with you three movies I watched recently and really enjoyed: Adam, The Words, The Trip.
PS. To my fellow Greeks, have a good Tsiknopempti tomorrow, and try not to eat too much!
See you soon with a recipe!
