Year 2005. “People think that their world will get smaller as they get older. My experience is just the opposite. Your senses become more acute. You start to blossom.” Yoko Ono

 It is today exactly 10 years I took this picture and when looking at these pictures it makes me feeling missing the momentum even a stoned soul will have to look at. It is impossible for the cherry blossom period to go unnoticed!  The cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. It is part of their soul. In a country I had the gratitude to work, the cherry blossom represents at the same time the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.
