Sharing the Jump for Joy experience with WENDY WILLIAMS WATT founder and creative force behind the Big Love Ball …
Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
A: A creative ah ha moment.. and the moment following when it is received by another.. It is otherwise known as a creative sugar buzz. Children have happy spasms all the time. As adults we tend to restrain ourselves.
Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
A: For me, Jumping For Joy is an invitation to play. Play is where creativity acquires its rosy cheeks. Rosy cheeks indicate that we are alive…I love jumping for joy. It was a honour to be asked.
Q: What inspires you in life?
A: I am inspired by making friends, meeting another’s soul through eye contact, activating self love in another when they have become spiritually downtrodden. I am greatly inspired in the presence of grace.
Q: Your greatest passion?
A: My greatest passion in life is communicating with others in a meaningful way.. Meaningful does not mean lofty or serious in tone. Meaningful stays with you. A young boy in Mexico ran into a restaurant where I was sitting with my newly engaged fiancé. I had seen him earlier on the street and we exchanged a heartfelt smile and silly face exchange… He ran in with a bouquet of flowers that I had not purchased from him earlier. He handed it to me without words and ran off before I could thank him. I still see his smile.
Q: Your driving force?
A: My driving force is to change the world with a word, to play with those who have forgotten how and to include as many people as possible.
A: Inclusion is our birthright.
Q: Anything in the world?
A: If I could do anything in this world, it would to influence people in a positive way. A way that would be helpful long after I am gone.
Q. Working on?
A: I am currently attempting to inspire people to connect with each other, in real time, in a way that is heart opening and meaningful for them. I have created something called BIGLOVEBALL, a huge white ball with the simple word LOVE spread across its breadth. It is a visual metaphor for what I feel in my heart. BIGLOVEBALL is now traveling around the world, and winding up in the centre of people who wish to celebrate LOVE. It has become symbol, gesture, or flag for those who wish to say, I am, I’m in, I do.
