Theme for the Poster: Alive (Wellness Week, Spring 2013)

From the Artist: "In Japanese culture the Cherry Blossom Tree is a symbol for the transient nature of life. The purpose of 'hanami'—excursions to 'watch the flowers'—was to ponder how fleeting and short life is. The flowers only last a few weeks, but during that time both the mountains and the cities are filled with the delicate, pink flowers. It reminds us that during these short years that we are ALIVE we should live to the fullest. Our lives should be filled with love, hope and joy, taking pleasure in even the tiniest miracle." - Desiree Catala; desireecatala.weebly.com
