Practical MagicOne word follows another,More Like This
Flowing soundlessly onto paper,
Until masterpieces are formed.
Slight imperfections can make the most beautiful form,
If you don't believe me,
Catch a snowflake and stand in awe.
That can altar a life,
And people are stronger because of it.
Silence could be all we need,
Just to hear the music in another room.
The simplest notes can heal a broken heart.
Or break one just as easily...
Friendships that are formed at the base of tragedy,
Defy all that is within sense and reason,
Overcoming the very thing that brought them together.
All it takes is a little practical magic.
Art Feature: A Tribute to Satoru IwataMore Like This
Today, I'd like to honour the life and work of Mr. Satoru Iwata, Nintendo's fourth president, who passed away last week due to cancer.
Over the years, Mr. Iwata has given so much to the fans of Nintendo and to the game industry as whole. He was a gifted programmer and a visionary leader, who always strived to make games fun and accessible for everyone.
Mr. Iwata was also well known for his great character. He was the type of person who took none of the credit for his company's successes, while taking all of the blame for its failures. In 2013, he famously cut his own salary in half to save the jobs of his employees.
In recent years, Mr. Iwata has also become the much beloved face of Nintendo by interacting with his fans through social media, and through his frequent appearances in Nintendo's online press conferences, Nintendo Direct.
Mr. Iwata was laid to rest yesterday, but we will never forget the wonderful games, consoles
