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.
Fifteen years ago today, I saw Spirited Away for the first time. It made an indescribably huge impact on me and has been an important part of my life ever since - I have lost count of how many times I’ve watched it, or how many hours I’ve spent thinking about it.
This is my tribute to a story that that gave eight-year old me courage to grow and a deep sense of wonder towards the world that’s still with me to this day.
