May Day

Today is May Day and I am reflective on celebrating it as a child. I remember dancing around the May Pole at my elementary school and making cones and filling them with candy for folks in my neighborhood. For most of us the day comes and passes without a second thought, although the kindergarden teacher just came to me and asked about the day. "I think it is special, but I don't know why." I love sharing my thoughts and my knowledge about things long lost...so next year I imagine there will be a may pole in her classroom.

As for me? Tonight Jonah and Matthew and I will make cones, fill them with candy and deliver them to neighbors!

Lou Ann

Lou Ann Homan-Saylor lives in Angola, Indiana which is nestled in the hills of Northern Indiana. When she is home at the White Picket Gardens you can find her gardening or writing late into the night under the light of her frayed scarlet lamp. She is a storyteller, a teacher, a writer, an actress and a collector of front porch stories
