The Girl Who Leapt Through Time

It had been quite a while to see a movie which is beautiful, to allow the imagination run beyond the normal boundary of life, and yet touching the heart at the same time; and still feeling lost and helpless at certain moment in time. It’s nice, it’s complex and there is a lot to ponder upon.

I like Japanese animation for a few reasons, one being the “feeling” of their art work which brought life to the simplest things, and their closeness with nature; and also it’s one of the few genre that actually inspire imagination and ideas. It’s funny, and yet could be mind boggling.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, showing us how we do stupid things by focusing on things that doesn’t quite matter; and making even more mistakes, and finally when we know our time is up, and where we got to realize what we should be doing instead. Let’s hope we still have a second chance by then, before everything is too late. At the same time, it brings back the simplest memory of childhood, and every simple and unattractive thing seems sweeter. I guess it only can happens in memory.

After listening to Steve Jobs’ Stanford Speech, I realize that death is an important element in life, where it helps us to feel the importance of time.

Time waits for no one.

Are you living without regrets?

I hope I can remind myself what really matter, and what not.
