It's not the season of cherry blossoms, but I wanted to share this beautiful photo that is very close to my heart.
A dear friend of mine emailed me this photo shortly
after I moved to New York City from Tokyo 4 years ago.
2 days before I left Japan, we saw each other to say good-bye.
I remember sharing my mixed emotions about moving
- tremendous amount of excitement and secret fear of uncertainty, as we walked through beautiful cherry trees which were in the early stages of blooming. Few weeks later, my friend emailed me to say, "the cherry blossoms that we saw together came into bloom!" And the photo had been attached.
<There are moments someone thinks of me> - knowing that made me feel safe during my new york life that had just started..
Well, 4 years later, I spent my Christmas with Chico Hamilton and his family.
"You are our family, Mayu." - their love and support mean so much to me.
I also felt loved during Christmas by my lovely students with cards, gifts, hugs and a lot of kisses.
The last few days of 2012 was spent with my dear friends.
So happy to see their smile, to know that they were in good health and happiness.
Then on January 1st 2013, I was invited to a wonderful new years day party at a home of such a beautiful family.They all were very warm and peaceful with love, and I felt most welcomed.
To be looked after by someone..
To look after someone..
To all of you that are close to my heart,
To all of you that I have yet to meet,
I wish 2013 will be full of happiness and love.
A lot of love,
