You wouldn’t be able to tell from these photos, but the Cherry Blossom Festival at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden this year was all festival and hardly any flowers, not like in years past when the sky looked like it was raining down petals from clouds of pink blooms. So the crowds flocked around the few trees that did have blossoms, whipping out cameras and posing next to any branch that had flowers. So many cameras and phones, so much posing. What a funny world we live in.
April’s almost over, but what a month. All good things, interesting things. Things that I didn’t expect, things that I didn’t know I even wanted, things that made me really think. And the month just flew by and just like that we are almost into May. But Spring has a way of giving you a new perspective on life, even if it’s only because we are spending more time outside. How good does it feel to spread a blanket out on grass and feel the sun? Made me realize that I was in a dark place for a long time.
And sometimes all it takes are a few good talks and walk with friends to make you realize that you are not so alone after all, that sometimes we create things in our heads that don’t really exist. I may have just turned 44, but hey, I’m still learning.
