"Now excuse me, I have to go."

>> Friday, August 27, 2010

As mentioned earlier this week, animator Satoshi Kon passed away.

Makiko Itoh has posted a translation of Kon's last letter here, and if you're a fan of Kon it's absolutely worth reading. Hell, if you're unfamiliar with his work but want a sense of his character, it might be worth a look, too. I'm not necessarily sentimental about death, but it's a moving testament.

With my heart full of gratitude for everything good in the world, I'll put down my pen.

Now excuse me, I have to go.

I hope I can face my own demise, whenever it occurs, with the same simple dignity.
