Spring is my favorite time of the year. No, I am not one of those people who “hate” summer or winter or monsoon. I just prefer the beauty around me in the Spring season more. Many years ago when I complained about the heat in summer, my mother said something really simple that made a huge impact on me. She said,”Seasons will come and go. You cannot have eternal spring. So try to enjoy everything in a season and move on in life. Do not wait for the next spring to LIVE.”
I am thankful that I understood it early on. That is also one of reasons I do not give in to the “Oh My God it’s Monday or TGIF” hype. Anyway. I still feel a little extra happy in spring and I have been fortunate enough to see 3 springs in Seoul.
The Spring in Seoul means I will be surrounded by Cherry Blossoms everywhere! I love snow and Cherry Blossoms because they make everything looks more pure and divine 🙂 Until last spring, I did not own a good camera but this year, I have my DSLR and here are a couple of photos I clicked near Tancheon stream close to my home in Seoul. More blossoms are appearing everyday and I plan to go on more “photography sessions” soon.
Happy spring to me! I also plan to attend the Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival this month. I will share the photos and videos here on the blog.
