I love Sakura, I have a beautiful cherry tree in my back yard in Holland and you help me see the beauty in it. Garr, you're a poet.

Absolutely beautiful post! After reading it, I realized you also wrote "Fall down seven times, get up eight" which inspired me; been ruminating on a post I'll be writing soon. My garden has been calling too to write about what it teaches us about time and patience.

Happy 1st Birthday to your daughter! May you feel connected to all that is beautiful, your mom, your baby and gratitude as you absorb the sakura.

'Life to all, love to all, peace to all' is how my yoga teacher often ends our classes. Sending you and Japan some life, love and peace Garr!

Kim

Beautiful, thank you Garr.

Thank you for this one, Garr; I know fully well what you have experienced.

My daughter was born the same week my mother was diagnosed with cancer; I was going from one hospital to another with the full gamut of emotions and the realization that life is entirely circular.

Luckily, my mother had the opportunity to enjoy her only grandchild for a time, (I never thought someone would *fight* me to change a diaper, but that was my mother's depth of love!), and the bond between them grew quickly before my mother passed on.

You have a great understanding of the Japanese spirit, and I appreciate these brief yet profound glimpses into the important aspects and lessons available in your experiences.

Thank you for the gift.
