Work in the Spirit World

Miyazaki Week at the Periscope Tumblr finds me reminiscing an Epic Failure back in 1994, I think it was.  I thought I’d work in the kitchen of Aplets and Cotlets for a summer job, and gave up without even putting in a full day.  I’ve always had a strong sense of self-preservation and the combination of smoldering hot caldrons bubbling with candy and my poorly developed muscles, I was afraid a full day of work would end in disaster.  I left the job in shame, and decided I’d spend the rest of my life at a drawing board.  Now that I’ve confessed, I think you may be able to appreciate the personal significance that this scene from Spirited Away has for me.  Quite powerful.
