Old Age and the Passage of Time
Teach All Things - Sophocles
Mr Sophocles, at the age of 90 or 91 when he died in 507AD, had pretty good credentials for knowledge. His time on earth, during his time on earth was pretty amazing considering the average life of Joe wine barrel was about
30 something when they passed,
worn and weary.*

Time is money yet you can't buy time with money.
Knowledge is your product,
life experiences are your currency.
Debts are paid in pain and hard lessons.
Payments are made to you in life's satisfactions,
love, contentment and well being.
Over time, you count your blessings, use your knowledge and share it to benefit your fellow man.
Excuse Me Blossom Blogger?
What does this have to to with the Cherry Blossoms in Historic, World Famous Wooster Square?
I guess it might be a stretch to say that the Wooster Square Blossom Blog has the street creds of someone like Sophocles. Not like they will be referencing quotes from the blog as some sage who could answer the eternal question, Why are we here?
And still talk about the Blog 1500 years later?
Doubt it, probably lost half the readers when you had to read the headline!
Yes! Blossoms! Lets talk about when our Cherry Blossoms will Pop and Bloom!
While I giggle my bits
out of my wikileak,

So...What does all of this Mean?
Well first, you ask a lot of questions for someone getting free information. Second, I'll tell you!
What we can tell you, is that we watch Washington DC's Sweet Sakura's closely. Usually, we follow their peak about 16 days past theirs. Or not!
You see, no one, not even the National Park Service can predict them within about 10 days of the actual peak, when about 70% are in Bloom.
So it's a kind of a day by day thing.
But it's not at all complicated.
Just follow the Wooster Square Blossom Blog,
