花見 & Sakura Blossoms

A couple of days ago I walked through the pathway of sakura trees in the middle of the street in front of my dorm. This is going to sound so cheesy, but it was so magical. The petals were snowing on me. Petals on the ground were swirling around my feet. I walked for blocks. It was the most peaceful feeling I have had since getting here. Old grandmas and grandpas were just sitting on benches, drinking beer. People walked their dogs through it. Moms and their kids were having picnics. It was nearly silent when I was walking. It was one of the most soul fulfilling feelings you can ever experience. I wish there is some way to bottle it.
