That scene in DGM 218 has been nagging and nagging at me, and I finally figured out why. Here it is. Appears I was having an attack of deja vu.
“Peter, I know things have been difficult lately and I’m sorry about that. I think I know what you’re feeling. Ever since you were a little boy, you’ve been living with so many unresolved things. Well, take it from an old man: those things send us down a road. They make us who we are. And if anyone’s destined for greatness, it’s you, son. You owe the world your gifts. You just have to figure out how to use them. And now that wherever they take you, we’ll always be here. So come on home, Peter. You’re my hero, and I love you.”
Cherry blossoms are the flowers most beloved by the Japanese. Because cherry blossoms have short blooming times and are fragile, they have been used to symbolize the transience of life; this symbolism meshed well with the teachings of Buddhism. Also, since cherry trees blossom en masse, they have also been used as metaphors for clouds. Fallen blossoms, not to be ignored, are likened to snow and later, as a metaphor for a warrior killed early in life.

“his irresistible eyes that are some weird shade that doesn’t exist”
“their unexplainable connection heats up, they can’t stay away”
THIS IS LITERALLY THE PROBLEM WITH ALMOST EVERY BOOK I PICK UP
