April passed, welcome May

1 May, 2016

Welcome to May.  May was Maius in Latin and was named after the Greek goddess Maia, it seems likely, who is associated with Spring.  So, what shall the theme be for May?  The fae and faerie?  Spring and nature?  Gods and religion?  Something else?  Let me know.  I always enjoy people’s suggestions.

Unsurprisingly April’s writings were dominated by the 2016 A to Z Blogging Challenge, which I am pleased to say I completed (sixth year in a row).  So, the posts for April, 2015, were:

  1. I’d be happy to read any of those topics, but if you’re taking suggestions I’ve always associated May with the Mayflower and the pilgrims who crossed from England to the the New World (I grew up in Massachusetts). You talked about individual drive to wander in the Yonder entry. What about groups? On pilgrimage, driven on an exodus, or for whom migration is a part of their culture (sanctioned by the Empress or clandestine…)?

    • Interesting. I will see what I can come up with.
