April Showers Bring.

Navy life can throw you for a loop.  Nothing is certain, and things can always change.  In fact, most times, they do.  We're not staying here in Japan as long as we anticipated, but I'm thankful for being able to see Japan in a full year.  For now, that means sakura.  Cherry blossoms.  These are what drive everyone's plans.  Even the Japanese.  They plan picnics and festivals and base any theme upon this ... phenomenon, I'll call it.  Because it's stunning.  Here's my take.

Fantastic, no?  Sakura are in perfect bloom for only about a week, so you have to catch it when you can.  The petals are already falling.  But we get them for a blink.  The perfect introduction to spring.
