When we lived in an Eastern European city of Prague, which could be a place like in a fairytale, there were still many shops run by individual owners.Veg in grocery, meat in butcher and gloves in gloves specialist shop. The grumpy looking shop keeper would ask you black? brown? from the back of the counter and throw you the gloves of your colour choice from there.
High streets of Nishi-ogikubo, where our shop/studio is, might have similar ambiance as there are also many individual owner shops.
Met once agin in Tokyo, the Two (of Temaricious) not only did got together soon, but did not even have a coffee together.
Probably, what we had in common at that time is both are looking for “something” to be really engaged in their life.
We had a stable happy life, friends and good holidays but something was missing. Something that we can truly enjoy for ourselves. What can I do? what can I do? that was always echoing in the corner of our mind.
We met many people like “previous us”, self searching. Many of them often asks how can you find it?
It might be disappointing to hear it but the answer is “it happens by chance” or “co-incidence”
