Hi! My name is Taka, and my pronouns are he/him. I remember seeing the 1st one as a child, and I loved it, but I think I missed the gravitas of it considering how young I was. But darn... Between seeing The Way Of Water, and reading some books on Zen and living in the moment, it's created this sort of confluence and desire for growth and improvement in myself. So I cut out social media, started hiking again and just listening and seeing the world truly, not with impassivity, and it's helped so much. But a big part of that is joining here. I lurk/post on forum sites and have visited here in the past, but I intend to stay this time. No more reddit, twitter, or other big social media platforms or conglomerates. These places are the best and I look forward to chatting with y'all.
