'Tis May Day once again; Beltane, a time of ritual cleansings and fertility rites. There should be frolicking and fire. What shall I leave out for the fae folk?
The backwood is lush and verdant. Nearly every available inch has honeysuckle vine on it this year; it smells divine. Even so, it's terribly overgrown and well, we don't need an additional vermin around. I've not seen any robins this spring. I wonder why.
The days seemed to have passed so quickly. I know I've done things and taught, but I can barely recall any of it. I've been so drained lately, school/Zoom seems to take most of my energy. Both Brian and I have been overwhelmed and emotional. Being an empath this time of year can be brutal as the students are just as frazzled and busy as we are. Brighter days are ahead; I can feel that too. The mental and emotional load won't be as heavy as it feels right now.
It's supposed to be a bit cooler today at 75 when yesterday was near 85. So incredibly thankful for the sun.
I guess this is enough waxing philosophically... there are tasks and chores to do.
