Nausicaa was one of the first anime films I saw as a child, and it really formed part of my consciousness. I’ve been looking online for the clip where she endures the bite of a foxtail creature on her shoulder, smiles at it kindly, until it becomes a peaceful, loving creature, who becomes inseperable from her. In a lot of ways, Nausicaa is one with nature, and it’s possibly the greatest animation I’ve ever seen. It’s been a beautiful moment this morning remembering her story, and a good guide for where I find myself now, in this torn world.
