Shigesato Itoi on writing about friends

“I write down things other people have talked about, or good things that have happened to friends of mine. This extends my enjoyment of daily life to the lives of others as well, and makes me want to be closer to the people in my life.”

Shopgirl wonders about life

“Sometimes I wonder about my life. I lead a small life. Well, valuable, but small. And sometimes I wonder, do I do it because I like it, or because I haven’t been brave? So much of what I see reminds me of something I read in a book, when shouldn’t it be the other way around?”

Shout-outs to You’ve Got Mail lol.
