Here, as the May, or Hawthorn, has finished blooming it is one of the times in the year that I pause and think about where I am and who I am becoming. While some think of May 1 as May Day, I prefer to wait until the Hawthorn acts as a signal to re-establish my center in relationship to the world around me. There is also a little meditation about approaching my birthday later in the year; May is the halfway mark to my birthday in November.
The passing of the May seems to coincide with spring cleaning, gardening, and all the renewal projects. It also signals that the time for outdoor fun is here, at least if the weather cooperates. Here’s hoping for a bright and renewing summer for my friends and family.
