Oh, Spring! How I love thee

I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season.

It’s been quite a long time since I updated this blog, but I am happy to be back with more cherry blossoms to love. What’s with my life these days? I am married with a baby, it is a lot more work than I thought, but way too much fun.

Back in the city I love the most, Huntington Beach. These cherry blossoms were blooming and looking prettier than they were 2 years ago when I took them.

To celebrate Spring, here are 10 inspiration Spring quotes that will inspire you:

  1. Nothing is so beautiful as spring – when weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush; Thrush’s eggs look little low heavens, and thrush through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring the ear, it strikes like lightning to hear him sing. – Gerard Manley Hopkins
  2. Some people plant in the spring and leave in the summer. If you’re signed up for a season, see it through. You don’t have to stay forever, but at least stay until you see it through. – Jim Rohn
  3. From the end spring new beginnings. – Pliny the Elder
  4. I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time. – Robert Browning
  5. You have to be like a clock spring, wound but not loose at the same time. – Dave Winfield
  6. Spring is God’s way of saying, ‘One more time!’ – Robert Orben
  7. Art doesn’t spring from the muses alone, but from hard work. – Tom Rachman
  8. A hush is over everything, Silent as women wait for love; The world is waiting for the spring. – Sara Teasdale
  9. As the hart desires the spring of living water, so my soul desires to leave the prison of this dark body and see You in truth. – Catherine of Siena
  10. All our discontents about what we want appeared to spring from the want of thankfulness for what we have. – Daniel Defoe


Cherry Blossom Festival

Spring is in the air and cherry blossom is blooming every where. This weekend I went to a cherry blossom festival located in Huntington Beach Central Park. It was a Japanese Cultural Festival. There were dance, music, crafts, food, games and of course plenty of beautiful cherry blossom trees. This type of events is filled with photographers.

This is called takoyaki (octopus balls) usually served at street stands.
