I found the ginkgo tree, actually, not one tree, but two trees. I found the first tree at the end of the block. I knew it had to be near because I found the first leaves in that area when I was most despondent. The leaves are great consolations to me. The trees are a sign of prosperity and hope in Japan. After the nuclear attack on Hiroshima, to end World War II, at point zero, where the bomb exploded, a ginkgo tree survived the impact and remained standing, intact, with its leaves on the tree. I found the second tree, literally, in front of my nose. I knew it had to be near, but I never thought it would be directly across the street. The moment I saw the tree was sweet.
