But you can breathe a sigh of relief. Whatever’s happening now must be good. I just met Jakob, so I don’t know if he’s always like this, but he has the soft spoken ease and the starstruck look of someone in love.
Maybe it’s a natural high, or maybe it’s just one of those serendipitous periods where you find two dollar bills on the sidewalk and meet new people at just the right place and the right time. Jakob seems to be experiencing something close to that these days.
Do you feel like you’re a spiritual person?
Ogawa: Sure. I think you attract what you want to attract. If you’re in a good space, you usually attract good people. If you’re in a needy space, you might attract people that are needy too. Lately I’ve just been feeling good. It’s a nice thing. Of course there’s ups and downs, life is what it is, and you can’t be happy all the time, but you shouldn’t be sad all the time. Balance is important, and there’s a big difference between being present and not being present.
