“Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

 Prunus Subhirtella 'Rosea' (Cherry Blossom)

The Prunus Subhirtella tree is native to Japan. My thoughts and prayers are with those whose lives have been and will continue to be impacted by the devastating earthquake and tsunami.

Perfect quote and picture. I was at such a loss for anything to say and anything I blogged seemed trivial. I just didn't do anything for a few days.
