For Japan

So sad — the devastation today after the huge earthquake and tsunami. And so I offer just a little glimpse of hope.

I took these photos with my phone in April 2010 in and around Central Park.

I know the people of Japan love cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms remind us of how fleeting life and beauty are.

These pictures are my prayers and thoughts for the people of Japan.

Beauty and spring will soon come. For you. For me. For Japan.

Cherry blossoms are inevitable. So is hope in the face of destruction.
