The Black Death comes; art by Theodor Kittelsen
The plague (which arrived in Norway in September of 1349)  was often personified as an old, wandering hag with a broom and a rake.  She would wander the countryside and pass through villages; if she swept the place with her broom, it meant everyone there would die, but if she only used her rake, it meant that some of the people there would live.

The Best Pictures Of This Year’s Japanese Cherry Blossoms

The Japanese cherry blossom, known as the Sakura in Japanese, is the flower of a cherry tree that is cultivated for its decorative features rather than for cherries (it doesn’t bear fruit). The overwhelming beauty of the cherry blossom bloom has been known and adored for ages. The blooming period is associated with Japanese traditions, culture, aesthetics, and is a bittersweet metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life itself.

The blooming cherry blossoms herald the beginning of the centuries-old Hanami festival – the traditional Japanese custom of picnicking under trees rich with flowering Sakura branches and enjoying this short but striking first breath of spring. The blossoming wave usually starts in Okinawa in January or February and progresses through all of Japan until April or May. The cherry blossom front (Sakura zensen) can be conveniently tracked every year using this calendar.

17. My boyfriend started to hum one night. He was sleeping on his back, and started to hum one funny song with no lyrics, stood his hand up and hit the wall, and stopped humming :D
