Merry cherry blossoms


We are in the time of cherry blossoms but not as cheerful as usual due to triple disasters - earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima nuclear crisis. Worse, we are facing one more disaster of political incompetence.

陽気な桜花

地震、津波、福島原発危機の三重苦に苛まれる日本だが春になりいつものように桜が愉しげな姿を見せている。しかしながら今私たちは政治的無能という災難も加えた四重苦を背負い財政破綻・経済崩壊という悲劇も視野に入っている。

And whatever happens on this planet, however much of a mess we humans make, so long as the cherry blossoms bloom each spring we have hope.

Dear Masa,

yes these are all quite terrible events. I feel with you in Japan. Nature is powerful, more powerful than humans. But he people have great power to destroy everything, and this is the biggest disaster of all ...

Cherry blossom is tender and delicate, fragile and yet so full of hope that they will bear fruit ...

A very schönese photo, thanks!

Many dear greetings from Switzerland
