:notebook_with_decorative_cover: Description of the work:

“A warm and cosy vintage library with hardwood floors and the smell of books invokes a sense of comfort in an introvert and eases an anxious mind. Us anxious people use books to escape the insipid reality and travel to many magical destinations.
If one could use a book as a portal to visit and see the cherry blossom trees in their bloom, What’s better than the serenity of traditional Japanese landscape to experience the Sakura.

In the Cherry Blossom’s shade, there is no such thing as a stranger” - Kobayashi Issa
The Mystical Shrines, The Humbling Torii gates, the crisp spring wind and lamps floating on the sparkling water would tranquilize a conflicted mind and make you wish the Reverie never ends.

And snap, we’d be back through the portal, sitting curled up by the fire-place in the library. But hey! This is beautiful too."
