Remember that. It has a lot to do with your whole life.. I have read haiku almost my whole adult life and wondered why the cherry blooms are such a compelling subject. Now I know.
I did this sketch on a bench looking out to the Jefferson Memorial from one of many vantage points. This one happened to have an empty bench, which was rare because there were many fans of the blooms present. It's not my greatest work...but it will always have meaning to me.
