Studio Ghibli can do no wrong

Watched "Whisper of the Heart" last night. A film which perfectly captures the struggle a young emerging artist feels upon realising how much more work is still ahead of her. In my perfect Film School, all first year students would watch this on their first day and all teachers would simply say "Let me accompany you, to find the lapis lazuli vein" whenever one of their students would be overcome with fear, exhaustion and helplessness in the ensuing years.

I still don't understand Princess Mononoke but I so love some of their other films.

They're looking for a vein? You know, like, ew.

I love Studio Ghibli possibly more than is healthy for an old bag like me.
