If you are like me, you can’t look at cherry blossom without thinking of Japan. The two are synonymous, whether or not you have visited the country.

This is my tribute to the people of Japan, and those around the world, who have been affected by the recent natural disasters.  It isn’t much, but it is my way of saying that my thoughts are with you all.
