the world is orange and red

Mayday is a high holiday. We are home to the Mayday Parade which happens every year a few blocks from our house. There are giant puppets, artists galore and pagan celebrations for spring. It is an amazing adventure. This was Olivia first year on stilts and Bella first year walking the three miles by herself, mostly b/c I had to catch Livi if she fell on her head.

It is amazing how uplifting it is to shout happy mayday at people and throw seeds at their heads. Besides it is full of children, kids who have created their own costumes who march in the streets. People who believe the world is a beautiful place and today for at least a few hours, it was.

the world is grey and blue and full of moving things in between.
