The arrival of cherry blossoms signals the end of chilly winter and the most anticipated season change. We find our imaginations still intact and undampened. Warriors of the Kamakura Period (late 12th - 14th c.) always considered cherry blossoms the symbol of a life lived fully, no matter how short. So do we at this time of rejoicing and reflection, gather with family and friends to appreciate the passing and coming of seasons. Spread your blanket picnic style and share in revelry, food, fighting (both heavy and rapier), singing, dancing and do as much as we can outdoors.
