photo of the day (may day)

Today is the first of May and Clare’s school held their annual May Fair. Last year’s celebration was rained out on more than one date and so somehow I managed to miss it. But this year, despite the threat of rain yet again, the gods were appeased and the dancing went on as planned.

I remember my own Mayfair celebrations in grade school. We gathered on the concrete play yard and danced round the Maypole to music blaring over loudspeakers usually reserved for announcing the end of recess and the occasional fire drill siren.

My daughter dances, as all fairies and sprites should, under the trees to the tune of fiddles and flutes.
