the first blooms…

My name, Anhđào, in Vietnamese, means cherry blossom.  My parents named me this because I was born in November, amidst the entrance to winter.  Their hope was that my arrival would quicken the cold and soon welcome the return of Spring.  This may be the reason of my infatuation to the first blooms, still so timid and few, and yet emboldened enough that they outshine the still-colorless background upon our gaze.  Maybe I love them because it’s not the beauty of the actual flowers, but the beauty of hope that we transfer to them, reflected back at us.

These photos were taken when I was in New York with Apollo Robbins this last time for his Today Show appearance.
