Cherry Blossoms and Beauty at the Pinto Museum

Actually, there are no cherry blossoms at the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. There are bougainvilleas instead.

It's just that, after the recent disaster tsunami of tragically sad and scary proportions I thought, Your cherry blossoms will bloom again Japan. Sending light and positive thoughts to a beautiful country now gripped by tragedy.

And so...

While life can be tragic and painfully fleeting at times, there is still beauty and happiness in the world. Just like the simple beauty and happiness of visiting a lovely museum with kids in tow.

Why does this remind me of high school and college?
