Takashi Kosumi/古住崇

November 5, 2012




Kosumi-kun had a great smile and he was a frequent target of mine whenever I picked up a new lens or camera.

僕も昔、古住君からのアドバイスでとにかくデフェンスを頑張ろう、いっぱい走ろう、と思った。 Kosumi-kun inspired me to really work hard on defense and to run a lot when playing basketball (and futsal for that matter).

ストレートに「大輔さんバスケ下手だけど」と言っていたけど、言おうとしている事の内容は優しくってわかりやすかった。去年言われたのは「大輔さん、無駄な走りがなくなったね」、嬉しかった。 He was blunt in his assessment of my basketball skills,”You’re really not that good at basketball,” but they were still words of kindness and what he said really made sense (how I can still be a net positive on the court even with my limited skills). Last year when we were playing ball, he told me,”you run a lot smarter than you used to,” I was really happy to hear those words.

皆様にも古住崇について伝えたいことがまだいっぱいあるけど、今日はとりあえず「本当にありがとうございました、古住君と起業して一緒に仕事が出来た僕は幸せでした」。 I’ve got so many more stories about Kosumi-kun in me, but for now I’d just like to say,”Thank you so much. I was the luckiest and happiest guy in the world to be able to found a company and work together with you.”
