May Day! Tuesday May 1, 2018

May Day! May Day! –

All in the happy way of course. And not for the S.O.S. kind of reason. This is an interesting day, especially considering the way it has been handled in the US. On the surface (and in schools – where I learned about it in my youth) it is about flowers – and that is about it.

But what else does it have against it? 1) It is the day the Soviet Union used to (maybe they still do) parade nuclear weapons and tanks through their streets. 2) It is a pagan holiday where people have SEX and dance around naked in the parks.

Kinda made it hard to celebrate the holiday growing up in the 70’s. But it always seemed like something special that we were somehow missing out on.

So the rule for the day is, if you are able and the weather cooperates, is to get outside. Barefoot. Soak up the sun. Feel the Earth beneath your feet.
