Right now in Japan the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. It’s absolutely beautiful and the feelings around are very pleasant. It is sunny today, and the light that hits the cherry trees makes me feel like I am in an eternal spring, leaving the bitter cold winter behind. This special window of time lasts only two weeks. It teaches you to appreciate the little time that you have and make the best out of the natural eye candy.
It is the most beautiful to me when they begin to wilt. Of course, it is not a happy thing to see them disappear, but it makes one feel peaceful at the same time. When the petals start to fall, it looks as if it is snowing in the spring time. My heart hurts as it asks this beautiful season to not leave, but it must. It is sad, and I really don’t want it to go. I want to live forever in this one space in time, staring from the train window at the white trees.
Catnapping in the sun, reading a book under a tree, sketching in the evenings as the wind blows in your hair. I just want to soak up each moment. I can’t explain it in any way other than, it is just the best feeling in the world to find something to love.
