Last month was a strange month!
The weather was constantly changing, which I suppose is typical of March, but it was much more extreme than normal. We had a days and days of balmy weather interrupted by a rare snow day and then back to unseasonable warmth. For the first time ever John and I went to view the cherry blossom at night without needing to wear coats.
And the crazy weather led to sakura chaos. The flowers opened nine days earlier than normal, and the really shocking part was that they came several days before the officially predicted bloom date - which is usually very accurate.
On top of that, it seems like all my friends here in Tokyo are in the midst of different major life transitions. Some of them are happy, others are stressful or scary. But it's felt pretty chaotic lately.
For my own life I've been trying to relax and find the small pleasures each day. Some days that works better than others. But here are a few of the good things.
