May be that’s what make it so unique since they only bloom in spring and lasted only for two weeks or so before those Sakura flowers fly away through the wind.
Near my house, just a five minute walk away, there is a very long and beautiful park along the Arakawa river with rows of cherry blossom trees. I could see those tree change from orange and red color in Autumn to The leafless trees in winter and all whitey during spring. Quite spectacular as seasons change. I hope you love them as much as I do
It usually gets very crowded on Friday night because it’s the last day of the week and they tend to go to their favorite places and come back at very similar times from 9 p.m or so. It’s so crowded that each time they hop on or hop off, the train also moves along with them.
Today I was not very happy with a man who seemed to hold on to my bag very often, but besides a side glance I didn’t do anything because there was no much space. Then some people hop off and I could turn my back and fully met his face. That’s when i realized something. I hadn’t been pleased with that man who actually cannot see. I’m really sorry I didn’t fully understand his situation. So I moved aside and gave my place to him.
So my reminder for today is I should look at the situation as a whole, put myself in their shoes, before getting upset with anyone.
I’m not a photographer and I don’t own a fancy camera, but I can’t resist taking pictures when I travel past a good view.
The world is so beautiful only if we believe. From sun rise to sunset, there’s always something to fall in love with. This sunset photo was taken when I got off a train and the ray was particularly eyes-catching.
Do you think it’s good if we make it a point to find at least one thing a day to feel grateful for?

So imagine the bike that you are seeing right there belongs to you and it actually has magic power which can travel up to any speed you’d like per minute.
In order to ride this bike, you have to say this sentence *we are good friends, let’s go for a ride* and the bike will arrive at your command.
One day you and your bike went to Alaska and saw a very big polar bear . The bear immediately recognize the bike and said *hey, it’s been a long time.. How have you been biki?* You were surprise because it was your first time to be in Alsaska but it seems your Biki was here before. Biki replied *I’ve been doing fine, I’m bringing my friend here to see you* .
The truth is Biki was once a boy, but he was transformed by god to be a bike because he was too tough on people and always abuse those around him. God told him that when it’s the right time, he would meet a good owner and he would become a human again in Alaska. Polar bear knows about this because Polar Bear is a friend of god and Polar Bear sense exactly who is the kind owner by just looking through their eyes. So that day Biki was transformed from a bike to the boy he was before and become a kind person ever after.
For the reason I only have my 4s with me, taking picture of bird by zooming is never a good option and I won’t do that. That’s why I always talk with them in a bird language :P. It goes something like this *hey, please stay there, I wanna take pictures of you, don’t fly away* then I walked up and do the shots. Glad they he/she did stay. 🙂
May be people here are so kind that birds get used to them already I think.
So my advice of the day: don’t scare the birds or anyone you love because you will lose something great.
I was working my way out with Google map as I was following its direction. It is funny how it put me to walk all around the university in a criss cross way while it was actually possible to walk in straight direction in less time instead. Yet, amidst this I found some cheery blossom trees today, so I will forgive u again Gmap..
And I don’t know what quote to put today so let’s make one myself:
– No matter where you are, I hope you’d find me in spring. –
A sunny morning reflection of sky and cloud at a rice field in Cambodia.
A common view like this can be seen all over the country during rainy season.
*To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.* – Bill Bryson-
