Because I was in China recently, I missed out on the first part of Hanami (Cherry Blosom season) in Japan and, I guess, arrived just at its climax. Suddenly the universe had flipped upside down. It was spring, but it was snowing pink... looking down into the rivers was like staring up into space... and people in Tokyo seemed happy for the first time. It left me feeling disoriented.
