This is awesome.
The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.
The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.
Cherry blossoms are beautiful.
Cherry blossoms try to kill me every year.
Two true statements.
"suns haste to set, that so remoter lights beckon the wanderer to his vaster home."

Energy, resilience, forgiveness and love at the Boston Marathon on April 21, 2014.
The first picture is of two of my beautiful friends, and the kindest souls I know, Emily and Chris. They inspire me daily.
The Boston Marathon taught me a lot of things about resilience, love, and vulnerability, and now I’m ready to spread that knowledge to issues outside of my own community. <3 I’m really proud of this city and I’m really glad to be moving forward.
(Also shout out to Evan for the most AMAZING pictures of the marathon. Dude. Like. Dude.)
