Nozomi met me after work today. Nozomi is a friend from London, a talented illustrator based in Tokyo. I know that Nozomi and I haven’t actually spent that much time together, we would just meet for coffee every now and then. But she’s smart, thoughtful, and the best person to talk to at any given time. She’s also full of silly stories.
We had okonomiyaki for dinner at Bow’s Door, this is now my second time here. Then went to the JBS bar for a quiet drink at the sound of soul. We had a second drink at the Bar Music, a lovely tiny bar full of discs and an incredibly cute dog by the entrance. We talked about work, freelance, fulfilling your passion carrier, dreams, Nozomi’s drunken adventures in Okinawa, and agreed to meet again another time.
