Bealtaine is here, not very fiery yet but we are being washed clean. Rain all morning and it makes me glad to be indoors. I'm on my break and had shredded wheat.
"April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with Spring rain."
T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land
The painting below is called Queen Guinevre's Maying, by the artist John Maler Collier. She looks very Marian in this picture. "Marian", did I use the word correctly, makes me suspect secret things, sub rosa.
