Tree of life

Hana-yuki

Hana-yuki is the snowing of tree blossoms caused by a gentle wind.

The idea of hana-yuki is an expression of one of my favorite aspects of Japanese culture; the balancing of joy in the optimistic magical attributes of the natural world with a deep appreciation for its ephemeral quality.
