I wish I could find a video of Casey Neill's ferocious "May Day Jig"-online, but since I can't here's another favorite in honor of this day of celebrating Fertility, The Goddess, Pollination, Solidarity and Labour.
I could go on about the ancestral traditions of The First Day of spring, the fertility rites and my own Labor Marching up-bringing, but I'm off to spring clean, watch my bees gather pollen and dance around the Maypole.
Here's a lovely songstress C. found who's band is named after Neill's counter-culture anthem. His songs so bring me to the spirit of this place and my people here.
Happy Mayday My Merry Folk Around The World! Hooray For The Riff Raff!
ps. I have been working on, here and there, a reply post to all your amazing comments on Simplicity and hope to get back on blogging track shortly. There's just too much growth, sunlight, human and animal friends and fertile soil around right now...
