It's May Day, the day on which you are suppose to either cavort or revolt (or maybe a bit of both). If you're not in the mood to do either, I suggest taking a walk and checking your local blooms. Even after the torrential rains of yesterday, the cherry blossoms in my neighbourhood were still looking glorious this morning.
After a dismal April, I've got my fingers crossed that May turns out to be a better month so here's to sunnier dispositions all around.
