"Memoirs of a Geisha. It's a time where things are flipped, women had power. It was empowering. The culture was focused on art; the first snowflake, the running water. It's aesthetically pleasing. We live in a world that's so rushed we can't enjoy a loved ones touch. We're so detached, we don't embrace simple things."
- David Fraser
