Blooming Once Again


They said I was dead

Yet I hoped for one more spring

And look, I'm still here!


My cherry tree received a death sentence two years ago. Friends who have been told similar things say that the best way to be with this diagnosis is to practice gratitude for the preciousness of our lives. In spite of everything that makes it hard to feel it, to practice gratitude for the miracle that we are alive, that there is exquisite wonder, beauty, and joy. And to live with hopes of flowers that will bloom again in spring.


私の桜の木は、2年前に死の宣告を受けました。同じようなことを言われた友人たちは、この診断に対処する最善の方法は、自分の命の尊さに感謝することだと言います。どんなことがあっても、生きていることの奇跡に感謝し、素晴らしい驚きと美しさ、そして喜びを感じること。そして、春にまた咲く花に希望を託して生きることです。
