May begins, April and the A to Z Challenge ends

30 April, 2020

Maia and her son, HermesWe are almost to the first day of May.  May was Maius in Latin and was named after the Greek goddess Maia, probably, who is associated with Spring.  So, what theme would you like to see for May?  Spring and nature?  The fae and faerie?  Something else?  Let me know.

Unsurprisingly April’s writings were primarily for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, which I am pleased to say I completed though, since I accidentally double up on K several were a day later than they should have been).  So, the posts for April, 2020, were:

  1. We survived! I think you cheated with the “X” just as I did with “Q”, though. I still have to read some, but so far my favorite was Gems and Gender.
