Hello from a magical Japanese spring! Are you well?
I am visiting my Japanese hometown in the countryside of Nara Prefecture. Walking amidst drifting cherry blossom petals, I am reminded of the wonderful walks under starry night skies at Thacher.
There’s a Japanese saying “ichi go ichi e”, which translates to “each encounter, precious encounter” – it is a mindset that reminds us to savor the present moment with whomever we are with, for everything will change with the passing of time.
It is with a gentle heart that I send warm wishes to you along with the mild fragrance of cherry blossoms to wherever you are in the world. Keep in touch!
