Looking UP!

This is a good prompt for me, because as some of you know, I tend to look down or in, or anywhere else but up. Frankly, there is nowhere else to go BUT up at this point.

Thanks to my always-ready-for-a-challenge French blogging buddy, Betty C., I'm also taking this initiative. I shall be rummaging about for upswelling ideas and thoughts, photos, poems and the like for this next month. May Day is today, the prom is tonight (L, be careful, please . . .). May poles—make of them what you will, but the weaving and unweaving of the streamers is thrilling to some of us onlookers.

What a lovely post! A great start for the May NaBloPoMo!

Sometimes all it takes is a little encouragement :)

I'm very glad you're back in blogland again. I remember dancing round a Maypole like that when I was just a tiddler at primary school in England. Happy May Day to you!

I remember them too. These days it's just the first day of Autumn and a celebration of trade unions . .bleh. Keep looking up . .(but don't trip over).
