Bloom where you are planted
Lady of the Lake…
Naia: The quintessence of a Japanese spring. Sakura blooming, a spray of petals on the water.
Thea: Fragile beauty. Even eerie.
Naia: The statue or the tree?
Thea: Oh, both. They complement each other.
“Bloom where you are planted” (Corinthians, 7:20–24) is good advice. Especially if you are native to a location. Naturally, it helps to be looked after by a gardener and to have an audience in the form of Konohanasakuya-hime (Cherry Goddess) standing by you.
