Finding a kindred spirit

I feel like finding a kindred spirit is one of the most rare things in this world. More recently, I guess starting teaching, I’ve found more and more people who seem to enjoy the same things as me and see the world in a similar way to myself. I love this.

Discussions of foreign films, art house films, photography, art of all kinds, books, world issues have filled my life in recent years and I try to remember not to take this for granted.

I decided to bring this up today because I had an extended conversation with a year 12 student today about foreign film and how much she enjoys it. Not just any foreign films though, the screwed up kind. Like me, her father introduced her to horror films, or intense films when she was quite young and as result she has developed a love for the outcasts of the film world. Some of the favourites include Martyrs, 2:37, Hedgehog, and Salute.

Personally French film are my favourites and having a French background helped me to really understand the culture, talking to my Grandparents and Great Grandparents (when I was younger) about life in Calais, and Paris when they grew up there and lived there. I took to learning the language and finally got the chance to go over there last Christmas. So my love of all things French, in particular French film continues to grow.

There’s nothing better than discussing the things you are most passionate about with those who are also passionate about these things. I will post soon some new photography and such.

Feel free to share your passions, if you like, whatever they may be. We may be kindred spirits after all.

    I’m glad you’re coming across all these kindred spirits, it makes life far more interesting and I think it also helps to give a sense of belonging in a larger community.
