cherry blossom viewing
It's now one month since the big earthquake and tsunami devastated the north east coastal areas of Japan. As if to emphasize this, there were several strong aftershocks close together this evening. The earth is still very restless, but we celebrate the arrival of the sakura.
Sakura, cherry blossoms, are revered for their fragile beauty and are always a reminder of the transient nature of life. This year more so than ever. Yet it was nice to see so many people out yesterday enjoying the warm spring weather and the trees full of pink blossoms.
