Lavie and I...

took Alvis to see Director Hayao Miyazaki’s production of Howl's Moving Castle (Hauru No Ugoku Shiro). The orginal story is by Diana Wynne Jones. We flew in to the theatre from quite a long way away since it doesn't have a very large distribution. We are all big fans of Miyazaki's previous works and have quite a few on DVD. But this was our first chance to catch one at first release. It was really moving. Lot's of symbolism and character development.

The picture above doesn't have anything to do with Howl's, but was very pretty. The Japanese online web newspaper Mainichi Daily News is running a photo contest of unseen Japan. The photo by Ryan from the USA is one of those submitted. The misty serenety captured really moved me. Don't know who you are Ryan, but you have a great eye.

See you in the skies!
