Or, if you're here in the NE with me, we can dance in the rain! My dog Nessie was kind of diggin' it when we went for a soggy walk this morning!

Funny true story... a friend and I were just talking about when we were kids and there were school, district-wide Maypole dances in the local parks...all grades in attendance.
Her 30ish SIL got the most horrifed/confused look on his face and said " you did pole dancing when you were kids??"
Culture is really time and place specific!!

"Why yes. Yes we did!" Leave 'em guessing...

Perfect! I've had some lovely Maypole dances, as I am a Pagan, it's Beltane, and also my birthday. IMHO, this is the best day to be born!

Edinburgh's Beltane Society has gone from strength to strength in the past few years!

Happy birthday, redfox--Taurus, eh? I can see it.

I certainly have Pagan inclinations. Nature is holier to me than any sect or tradition or any notion men can codify. Hope you had a lovely breezy, overcast birthday!

ETA: The Edinburgh Beltane fire festival sounds wonderful, Ishbel!
