May Day/Beltane/quasi-anniversary

Happy belated May Day/Beltane/International Workers' Day to all!

And especially to Kam.

(Who got up ridiculously early this morning to go see Morris dancers in the Baylands. I had no idea there were Morris dancers around here. I admire both the dancers and the audience members for getting up that early, but it's unlikely that I will ever see Morris dancers--even y'all friends of mine who are reading this--performing in their native habit and habitat, given that I think the last time I was awake at dawn was maybe 15 years ago during an overnight camping trip to Foothills Park. We tried to watch the sun come up, but there was too much haze; after it got light, we went down to the meadow and watched a herd of deer grazing in the mist. Magical, especially after a sleepless night. But I digress.)

Some day I'll get around to posting the story of how I first met Kam; it looks like I've never posted that here. But at the moment I'm roughly 3/4 asleep, and I still have a little more to do before I go to bed, so for now I'll just mention that it's been 16 years since that Beltane on the beach not long after I met her, and I'm still glad to have her in my life. Yay, Kam!

    Yes, having a Kam in ones life is a very, very good thing to celebrate. Though, I thought you knew her longer than I did? I just assumed you were a childhood friend, or something like that. Kam aquired me at Mudd, where did she find you?
