Hugging Hayao

On this day, I would like to give anime master Miyazaki Hayao-sensei a great big hug in celebration of his 70th birthday and to thank him for his beautiful films!

Even though I haven’t seen them all, my favourites from his Studio Ghibli canon are Castle In The Sky, Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and Ponyo.  An indulgent dreamer, I’m happy to be transported to his magical places (where almost everyone can fly!) and fall in love with his heroes as they rise triumphant over their challenges.

And you know the music will always get me.  His soundtracks are perfect for hugging!  So find a good hugger, enjoy this, and smile…Ahhh…

The pleasure in hugging music.  “Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea” by Joe Hisaishi, from Ponyo (2008)
