The Therapeutic World of Japanese Anime

A less productive half-day with a fair amount of loose ends, mostly revolving aound the media campaign for some reason, like: who does what, how we work wth Ogilvy, which is more important - national or local etc etc. But some good 'surgeries' in the afternoon dealing with indviduals' or small groups' specific issues. 

Come 5pm I jumped into a taxi and on the spur of the moment decided not to go back to the office, but home for movie night. We watched The Secret World of Arrietty, the latest in the long line of animated films from Japan's Studio Ghibli. It's based on Mary Norton's The Borrowers which I read - or had read to me - as a child. Typically brilliant Studio Ghibli creation, with its strong girl as lead character (like Spirited Away's Chihiro), wonderful animation and just about the right level of sentiment. This one's not directed by Miyazaki, although he co-wrote the screenplay.
