My Saturday was busy, but filled with visions of peace.

First was the peace that I find at the sanctuary.


Sassafras snoozing.

And then was simply basking in the beauty of the cherry blossoms, which last for only a few weeks, and which require the braving of gigantic crowds in order to see them. But it was worth it, and one lesson life has taught me well is that no matter the crowds, we can always find that peace and solitude, if that is what we seek.
