Sakura 桜

May 5th, 2008, 12pm

First time I saw the sakura blossom in Tokyo I was not impressed at all. Is that all? Just flowers? We also have flowers in Spain! I guess I was too young and stupid to understand it.

It is not about seeing flowers, it is about the experience. It is not about the trees, it is about us enjoying an afternoon below the trees.

Sakura beauty appears every spring, every year, no matter what; marking the passing of time. It is about feeling the impermanence of the flowers and relating it to our own existence.

How many more times will we experience sakura/hanami during our lifetime?

Ken, Christine and Craig said thanks.
