Happy first of May!
*mutters to self* You don't have time for this. You should be grading those portfolios stacked up in your lap.
*self bellows back* But it's the FIRST of MAY!
It's a day for celebration of life and spring and earth...for dancing around a Maypole...for standing up for workers' rights all over the world.
It's also the day that Brenda Novak's Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes starts! Go check it out! Right now! Lots of great auctions for writers and aspiring writers!
It also just happens to be the day the Great Exhibition of 1851 opened in Hyde Park, London, England. But I'm guessing only a small subset of literature and history geeks care much about that. It seems to be the touchstone of both my fiction writing and my academic career.
Have a lovely May Day...even if it is rainy and grey!
