Hadrian’s Villa in Tivoli, Italy
No more glory for Rome
Between 400 and 500 AD, the population of Rome dropped from a half million residents to less than 50,000. The city’s population did not fully recover until the early 20th century.
Margaret Hamilton accepted her horrific on-screen appearance— replete with gangrenous skin, a jutting jaw, and a sharply hooked nose— having long ago made peace with her lack of physical beauty. “I’m glad I’m homely… My face has given me lots of work,” she confessed twenty- two years after playing the film’s heavy. With good humor, Hamilton recalled one instance of on-set ribbing to Parade’s Karl Kohrs: “They put a sign on my chair, ‘Mag the Hag.’ Why, I just loved it. I’m not sensitive about my looks.” She stubbornly defended her appearance from the time she was a little girl. Her father wanted to take her to a plastic surgeon to have her large nose altered, but she refused, saying “It was mine, and I wanted to keep it.”
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.
