Sakura


Lucy and Émile have been enjoying the cherry tree, now that it's finally in full bloom. I keep hearing the Japanese song, Sakura, as I see the petals dusting our patio
(lyrics from wikipedia)
sakura sakura
noyama mo sato mo
mi-watasu kagiri
kasumi ka kumo ka
asahi ni niou
sakura sakura
hanazakari
Lucy's dress was her birthday gift from her parents, who compromised on princess dresses by buying from a seamstress on Etsy, Lover Dovers Clothing.

A few days ago I listened to the Terry Gross interview with the artist John Sarkin, who only became a professional artist after a stroke engendered his obsessive and continual need to create. Maybe I had a stroke at birth.
