from a Japanese classic essay by Kenko Yoshida (priest, poet, 1283-1352)
"Never think the cherry blossoms should be seen in full blooms.
Never think the moon should be seen without cloud.
It's very tasteful if you pray for the moon while it's raining.
Also it's elegant if you can't see the depth of springtime through the drawn blind.
The treetops with cherry buds and the falling petals and drooping flowers in the garden are worth looking at."
