“You can design and create, and build the most wonderful place in the world. But it takes people to make the dream a reality.”
~ Walt Disney
We remember places. The house where you grew up, your favorite store, the playground in elementary school, the site of your first kiss; places like these. Akin to places, we remember moments; watching the fireworks on a warm Summer night, a lone winter walk with a heavy mind, blowing out the candles on your birthday cake. Moments, in their own way, are places, places in time. But when the place and the moment come together, we call it a memory. And even though we may not be there, wither ‘there’ refers to the time or place, we carry a piece of ‘there’ with us. We remember places. And sometimes, places remember us.

Founder Third Place Media – Michael focuses on ethnography or the effect of transit, location, and environment on society and the people who live there. He takes these practices, and applies it to anime in his “Weekly Review of Transit, Place and Culture in Anime” column on his blog, like a fish in water. He is what I would call a photo journalist, capturing the amazing scenes of life that occur all around us. Recently, he wrote a piece on what it is like being part of the butaitanbou and sechijunrei community.
