Ballet and Blossoms
It has been quite a weekend. Yesterday - Valentine's Day - was Yumiko's ballet performance at U-Port theatre in downtown Tokyo. We were worried that she might be too sick to perform. She's never ever sick, but two days ago, she woke up sick as a dog with a fever, cough, headache and pale as a ghost. We went to the doctor's office and he prescribed some antibiotics and lo and behold, she rallied. Her performance was magical. She is just a wonderful little ballerina. I wanted to take photos of the performance, but it was strictly prohibited. So..... I am including a few "light" photos from early this morning and later this afternoon. This includes an egrit and a few crows from Yoyogi Park, magnolia blooming on Omotosando, and some early cherry blossoms against the sky in Aoyama Cemetery. We can feel Spring in the air. Hallelujah!!
