Happy First of May! In Germany you go outside today, look for "may bugs" --the proper British name for them is cockchafer -- dance around the Maypole, or (if you are a young bachelor) cut a young birch tree and put it in front of your sweetheart's window. The birch trees around here have lovely new green leaves right now. We were able to see many pretty blooming trees today on our trip to a performance of Peter and the Wolf. A local orchestra played the music and the storyteller Jay Stetzer told the story by involving children from the audience.
