Hayao Miyazaki – Gentle Genius

We all have people we admire, whose work and talents make us all better people. One blog I follow is by a man named Mike Baker, and he had the chance to meet one of his heroes, Hayao Miyazaki. Spirited Away and Princess Mononokeare two of my all-time favorite animated movies. What an incredible opportunity. Read what he has to say about his experience, and start to think about someone you would like to meet, and what do you think the encounter would be like: would your hero live up to your expectations? Where would you meet them? What would you ask them? What would you want them to ask you?
