blossom is everywhere this week! i suspect we’ll be seeing a lot of it on blogs in the coming weeks. which is fine with me because i love seeing it.
it reminds me of two particular blossom trees from my child/teenage-hood. the first being a huge one that was in front of the library where i spent a fair amount of time. it made me so happy sitting and walking underneath it when it was in bloom.
the second – i can’t remember specifically where it was located – outside some houses near where i lived for a few months about ten years ago now. it was a bad time in my life and passing that blossom tree was a little beacon of hope for me. i think i even have a photo of it somewhere (from my XA!) ..i’ll find it for next week.
this week i’ve spent a fair bit of time indoors working on illustrations, looking for jobs and trying not to completely fall into despair over my financial situation. the good has outweighed the bad, the sun has been out and i got out for a couple of walks, so i’ll take that as a win. and blossom trees, you are my sign of hope. thank you for blooming and reminding me that things do get better.
