Started with watching, oddly, Miyazaki’s Spirited Away at Kendall Square Cinema, before I had to take care of some very personal and, frankly, very troubling and difficult business. It was odd to be watching a Japanese film, in English, in Boston … and then totally unprepared for the INCREDIBLE sense of nostalgia when I saw the countryside, the telephone poles, the concrete. I hated these things, still do, yet why does seeing them animated on a big screen move me to tears? I guess I feel unrooted, started to “belong” to a place once again just as I rip myself out of it… -_-
Now off to Sound Bites for brunch, maybe some more fun with bellebet and rogueactor, then off back to Toronto! What a whirlwind weekend, but SO GOOD for my soul.
