Why Kiki’s Delivery Service is important for flailing 20-somethings like myself and why this movie makes me cry happy tears:
-Kiki goes out into the world and realizes how bad some people can be, but she still tries to do good -She knows she’s wants to be a helpful witch but she doesn’t really know what to do with her witchy powers -She literally loses her powers after becoming very depressed with this knowledge and feeling like she’s not a good enough person or a good enough witch -She realizes that she may not be doing anything “great” or “cool” like other witches but she’s actually really successful because she uses her powers to help people and start her own small business -Miyazaki is trying to show us that because Kiki is kind and helpful and stays true to herself then that is what makes her incredibly successful -Sometimes we need reminders in our life that we can be successful in many ways
It was such a wild weekend with such an incredible turnout of people and I got to meet so many of them (although I’m sorry if I missed you; I was only there for certain times). I’m extremely honored that I was able to be a part of such an experience as my first time as a part of a gallery! There was a lot of love and effort put into it and I can’t thank everyone who put it together and made it possible enough. And thank you so much if you were able to make it and I’m sorry to those who couldn’t.
